I failed PcM for a forth time. I have had different experiences. The first time I made a very bad time management and I was not able to finish the case studies. The last two report are identical. I reached category 2 on three sections (so I "passed" those) but I was low, category 3, in the category for Financial. Because I knew that I expend a month reinforcing Financial. I still think that there are no sources to prepare the questions that involves Billing rates, Overhead or indirect expenses, direct expenses, break-even rates, etc. I can say that I have a language barrier and even thou I have to reread some questions several times, I get to complete the 80 questions. I only found one of the case studies hard to find the answers in the exhibits. The case studies are hard to navigate. I have passed PjM and C&E. I don't understand why PcM is causing me so much trouble. The handbook, Ballast, Brightwood and Black Spectacles is the material that I am using and I don;t think I need more. I memorize many of the formulas for the financial ratios and I write them down as soon as I started the test. They were there, they were very handy but I still have question that I do not understand how to handle the given information in the problem. I am in Jacksonville, FL. I would like to meet someone who is preparing this exam and practice together. If you are in this area please, contact me and we can coordinate a study session.
