I took the C&E for the first time yesterday, I felt great about leaving the test center but i just got the results and the four big letters nobody wants to see appeared - FAIL. I am beyond frustrated, it is my 5th FAIL overall, at this point i am not sure where to turn to tackle these tests. I feel like every exam was a comprhension exam and test on the test taking skills. I have studied and spent tremendous amount of time absorbing the materials and analyzing the real world applications, but still came down to test taking skills that has nothing to do with being an architect. This is just my take and I would love to hear what others thought about these tests.
Incidentally, English is my second language, not to use that as an excuse but it adds extra burden when it comes to taking these standardized tests. There is no accomodation when it comes to that either and CAlifornia Architects Board clearly states it on their website.
Anyways, good luck everyone and I am off to the next exam - PjM here we go.
