    Sorry to hear that Sergio, I failed in PCM twice and will try 3d soon, experience helps but don’t let it be an obstacle - try one more and see if you can do it, no memorise and read the questions carefully, at least thats what i understood from many reviews. And the fail itself is part of process until you pass. Keep going and hopefully both of us will do it.
    All the best

    Sorry to hear that you've failed your first trial in PcM Sergio.

    I totally understand you because I've also experienced the failure as you did in my first exam. However, don't be too disappointed with your failure. ARE is a long journey and strong mentality is a MUST HAVE until you end this journey.

    Based on my personal experience, you seem to be on the right track in terms of your study materials you have as well as your time input. I would strongly suggest go deeper with AHPP. As NCARB suggested in their ARE5.0 Handbook, AHPP is the key study material for PcM.

    Also, if you need more practice questions prior to your second try, MyAREguide could be helpful. Exposure to many practice questions will improve your pass rate.

    Let's look at the bright side. At least it's a good sign that you did not feel extremely difficult with your exam (because some people do) and as you said, I also agree with your idea to move onto PjM since both divisions share many common topics. Studying PjM can actually help you finding the missing piece of the puzzle.

    Anyways, keep up your effort and good luck with your next exam.

    Okay yeah I like all the feedback and info I'll look into the links. I'm going to keep at it and I'm learning a lot I understand that the ARE is basically a journey. I see it as a learning process, I will check out more practice questions and dig deeper into AHPP. It was a good learning experience that I took my first exam and will get back to PcM soon. Like you said the good thing is that some of the content overlaps in the exams.

    Good luck to you too, thanks.
