    Hey Shawn,

    I am sorry to hear it, while for myself, as a candidate who just started working on ARE wish you good luck for next try. You are very close to that point, only one exam left.  You will make it.

    Doing better than me. I'm on my 5th try... It is starting to become a mental health issue for me. Hopefully you pass the next one!

     OMG  I can relate to your pain,  I also feel the mental health weight of this test. I have a tough time with "engineered" questions in general and I know if I had another 30 mins on this PIA of a test  I could pass it.   Time is not on our side!  

    For this next go around. I have gone back to my old ARE 4.0 Flash cards, prior practice tests, old Ballast books,  etc... as I find all the new ARE 5.0 Study materials to be less useful for this test.  

    I am also perplexed in looking at pass rates on these exams.   On average they are all @ 50%.+/-.   PDD pass rates have been declining over time as well. WTH  

     Hang in there and keep studying we can get this.
