    Emily,

    Do you have access to practice exams? I recently retook PcM and passed, I think what helped me was taking lnewsof practice exams and going over the sections and types of questions I got wrong. This allowed me to narrow down and focus my studying. For example I would use blackpec and if it says Section 1 I did bad I would look for which types of questions in section 1 gave me the most trouble. I also tried to improve my score each time I took the practice exams

    Hey Tony,

    Thanks for your reply! I had access to the Ballast practice exams and did pretty well on those, and like you said I would compare my wrong answers to the correct ones. In retrospect I should have probably delved deeper into the broader themes but will definitely be taking your advice and giving myself more time to grasp the full picture rather than reviewing and moving on. 

    Would you recommend Black Spectacles as an additional service for studying? I have been on the fence and thought I would be fine with just the ARE test prep. 

    Again, thank you for your advice, it gives me a little more confidence that the test is at least passable by others and I just have to work harder.

    Emily,

    So what I like about Blackspectacles is the practice exams, they look and feel like the REAL exam. I use ARE Exam Prep as my basic study material (I like how it's organized) and then I would just dive into the AHPP. I also used Hyperfine it is really good in helping you narrow down AHPP and has links to relevant material.
