    Hey Yafei,

    I am in the same boat. I felt really good about the exam but didn't pass. This exam has a pretty high cut score (I think 68-71) so you have to get more questions right than other exams. It looks like you are right on the boarder. You may have to do an additional third party provider to get knowledge from a different perspective like Hyperfine or AEP. Also!  You may have to tap directly into the sources of NCARBS materials to get the questions they are looking for like reading through MEEB and BCI and others. We will pass soon. Stay positive!

    You need to pass content area 4 Project Integration of Program & Systems because it's 32-38% of this exam.  You won't pass this exam without passing that section.

    Keep studying & good luck!

    Hi Tyrone,

    If you have already read all of Ballast, I would wholeheartedly recommend ASC.  It's an easy read too; it's mostly charts & diagrams.

    Keep studying & hope this helps!
