I'm on the same path as many others here: passed PjM, PcM, and CE in 6 weeks. I think that gave me a false sense of confidence, even though I've been reading on here for weeks that PA is a very difficult exam. I've done a Bootcamp and I have a lot of study materials, and I was passing the Ballast ARE practice problems and mock-exam (albeit, barely passing, but that was my experience with CE and the real exam was easy to me).
I had one of those experiences where the myriad of materials at my fingertips could not have prepared me. I didn't understand half the questions and felt like some weren't even appropriate for the theme of this exam (I hear there is overlap). I don't know how I can even study further in the future: 1/2 the questions were so foreign to me and then 1/2 the questions I felt confident I got right.
Do I move on to PPD? Overall I'm feeling discouraged and just need a little pick-me-up from others who can relate.
