    Not all questions are worth the same amount of points. Some questions aren't worth any points, if you choose the right or wrong answer on these questions, it will NOT impact your result on your exam. NCARB is just messing with you.  

    So don't get distracted and waste time, when you see crazy nonsense questions on your exams. This is normal.

    There are 6 items on PcM that don't count at all.  You'll have no idea which questions they are.  So if a question seems strange, unfamiliar or will take 10 minutes for you to figure out (long math equations, etc) just skip it.

    All the questions that are scored are worth 1 point.  The case studies are the same - 1 point.  You should be watching the clock throughout the exam.  Don't spend more than an hour on the case studies.  I suggest starting with the case studies too.   

    Hope this helps!
