    As further context, I studied for approximately 2.5 hours/evening after work Monday-Thursday, 2-4 hours on Fridays (my office luckily has half days every Friday, so I get a built-in study time), and 3-6 hours Saturday and Sunday for the entire 2 months of studying.

    I'm sorry Lisa! so frustrating! It's really hard when you put your best foot forward and feel like you stepped in poo. I ended up switching from 4.0 to 5.0 for that reason. It's been two years in the making but I took and passed Programming and Analysis a month-ish ago and am taking PjM on Saturday. I can give you feedback on the overlap if you're interested!

    Hey Lisa! I hope you're hanging in there! I just got feedback that I also failed.. bummed but not surprised. I recently experienced a serious car accident/concussion, a surgery, along with other atypical life craziness! My study group has been really supportive and encouraging of me through all of this. Do you have peers that you can bounce questions off of? I think that's what stood out in your previous post. You're totally going above and beyond doing everything right, but sometimes feedback in the moment can really help sink in the nuances that you should be aware of. As far as overlap in the two tests, I think you're right, there is Programming and Analysis Overlap. It's not clear to me yet the best way to study for it. Maybe go through the Case Study questions in the NCARB ARE demo test?  As far as moving forward if you know the areas that caused you trouble from the Exam Score Report you can double down your efforts on those areas. I hope this isn't too much! I know wrapping my head around not passing can be a lot but if you can take what you know and apply it forward- we will pass!
