Review the class summary PDF and email they sent you. Also obviously practice problems.

What did you get on the benchmark exam? Most of my class did 10pts better on the actual exam, so it really is a good benchmark.

This. It was many years ago now, but I was only getting low 70s on the Knopman prep exams and scored in the upper 80s on the actual. If you are doing well on the practice exams, you should be good.

Yeah my benchmark was a 62 only but I'm creating exams with 185 questions over all the material and averaging mid 70s. Think this helps?

I got a 62 on bench mark exam last week, but it was my worst exam. I took 3 additional exams over all material and got: 74, 76, 79. I'm hoping those provide value! Very nervous for this exam especially after a lower benchmark.

You'll be fine

Did you find the actual exam was significantly easier than the practice ones?

Sep 27, 2018

Yes and there were several questions that were almost verbatim.

Benchmark was actually only and 62, but was my lowest score. I created 3, 185 question exams over all the material and scored a 74,76,79. Hoping those are indicitive. Thoughts ?

Here is my study schedule, and I got an 86.

  • Read the book once, highlighted it as a I read
  • Read the powerpoints from STC
  • Read the "cheat-sheet" from STC
  • Took 5 practice exams
  • Did the flashcards until I remembered everything

Altogether, about 40-50 hours of studying. The practice exams were the most valuable. I'd recommend taking two today and two tomorrow if you can. And review everything you got wrong or guessed on.

I used the STC Series 79 online question bank and presentations. Crammed for 3 days and passed.
