Took my first exam, PcM, today...and got a PROVISIONAL PASS :D. Here is EXACTLY what and how much I studied (115 hours) for those interested:
You should be able to save this to your Google drive as a copy if you want to keep/modify it. I feel like the material in my spreadsheet was comprehensive enough to teach me everything I needed to know. Although, some of the AHPP material felt irrelevant, it was still good information to have. There were only a couple of questions that were not covered by my study content, and one of them I knew from professional experience. I found the Ballast practice questions very similar to those on the exam. I finished the exam with feeling unsure of 21/80 questions, but managed to get that provisional pass. The 21 questions I was unsure about on the test were most likely "best answer" types, or "pick 4" types (when I was only sure of 3). I knew the information needed to make the decision, it was just hard to decide.
Keep in mind, my study partner studied almost identical to me, and did not pass. :(.
I would highly recommend timing yourself on a full practice test to make sure you have plenty of time left. The real test will take MORE time than a Ballast practice test.
