dont u have unlimited attempts? Also It should be pretty straightforward, no tricks. This isnt a class for credit they are just trying to give you a preliminary understanding of the material

It isn't too bad as long as you have a good handle on accounting, valuation, and simple bond math. I went in over-prepared, and did not "study" besides finishing most of the models.
