    I had the same issue regarding the copola question. My PJM exam is tomorrow, hopefully you did well.

    I think I did well; we'll see when the official results return.  I'm not entirely sure how to process the provisional "likely pass" result, whether to treat it as a relatively sure thing and they're just making sure I didn't cheat or whether my pass/fail status still hangs in the balance somehow.

    The actual ARE was much more straightforward and specific than the practice ARE was.  I can think of only one moment where I might have worded a question differently, but I think I know what they were trying to ask.

    Eric, 

    I failed the PM practice test three times in a row, printed the practice test, memorized every question and got a provisional pass on my exam - still pending as well. There were a lot of questions in the practice that were ambiguous. How about the effort allocation question with the table of staff available hours that has no labels as such. We can't tell if it is describing current workload, or available workload. 

    In the actual exam I got a question with about 9 boxes labeled all in yellow and had to put about 7 items in the correct order. I felt the question was very confusing and unfair, given NCARB's all or nothing approach to partial credit! This is also a problem for the internal review milestone question you mentioned. Too many options of placement to be graded too harshly on.
