I would like to give some feedback regarding the timing of this exam in particular. I am someone who transitioned from 4.0 and I have to say that the questions in 5.0 seemed to be more critical thinking questions that would take an individual more than the calcuated 2 min. per question to answer depending on the question.
Unfortunately, I did not have the time to go back through my marked questions for review as originally expected and as I was able to comfortably do in 4.0.
As mentioned in an earlier post for Project Management by Darguin Fortuna specifically relating to the case studies, the time given to answer the questions even with the reference materials and the search tool was not enough and I felt rushed throughout my whole case study process.
Following the Practice Management exam I took Project Management. Now knowing how quickly I needed to go through the questions helped, but I still felt that I didnt have adequate time to really analyze the questions given. I have my fingers crossed for a pass for these two exams and plan on taking more shortly, but I hope my feedback can give some insight and act as a helpful tip for both future exam takers and NCARB.
Best of luck to everyone!
