I took PcM today and pass on my 2nd try. I have struggled with the ARE exams and want to encourage others. My strategy going into the retake was to start with the areas I passed the first time taking the exam and then moving to those sections I failed. I used four Exam prep material(AHPP, Designer Hacks, Blackspecs and Hyperfine). I used the exam like material to help guide me and show me where I needed to improve. Hyperfine really helps you narrow the reading scope of AHPP. I used designer hacks as my little "quizzes" and I used blackspec as my measuring tool. Blackspectacles helped me identify areas I needed to improve, so if section 1.2 I missed a lot of questions, I would go and read sections in AHPP on that subject. This, in my opinion helped me to be successful this time around.
