I will be retaking PPD & also PDD soon, and I am looking for advice regarding how to budget my time.
Both exams are 120 items (approximately 10-20 case study questions) and 4 hours 15 minutes. That leaves approximately 2 min/item.
Here's what I'm trying to decide:
- How much time should I budget for the case studies? Given my previous experience, 2min/item (40min for case studies) really doesn't seem like enough time. On the flip side, case study questions are worth the same as the regular multiple choice. What approach makes sense here?
- Should I do the case study first or the multiple choice first?
- Any tips for how I can use my 15-min break wisely? I'm thinking about not leaving the room and using it for extra thinking/problem-solving time.
Thanks in advance and good luck to everyone!
