A little advice


At this time, I feel the need to say a few things in regard to studying.  Make sure you are not spending too much time doing JUST questions.  Make sure that you understand the procedures and the material.  Questions are good but questions without the base knowledge, not so much.

Do yourself a favor, and spend a little more time studying the Patrol Guide and a little less time testing yourself.  The only test you need to get right is the 100 questions on test day.  If you feel the need to test yourself, make flashcards or something similar.

Good advice...I feel comfortable with my knowledge thus far, but damn the stress is getting to me! I have a vacation coming up and will devote it solely to review...after that, it's all out of my hands! I do well on some and poorly on others as far as the questions...no one can predict exam difficulty, so I agree that only those 100 next month count...who knows where they will go with them. Is the exam completed already? Just curious how it works and if there really is a method the writers use to base difficulty. This is my first exam.
