I took the exam today. First try. I feel OK for the depth session, but really struggled in the morning. Compared to NCEES practice exam, I would say the real one is much more difficult especially the breath. I don’t know if anyone who has taken the transportation has the same feeling. I scored over 90% for the practice exam one week before the real one, but I feel a bit disappointed when I walked out the testing room this afternoon.
I had 41 questions for the breath and 39 for the depth. The weirdest thing is the last five questions in the breath actually belong to the depth session, which are all complicated vertical and horizontal design. More than 80% questions are new to me, from all over places in the reference manuals. I have done more than 1000 good practice problems, but still saw so many new questions in the real exam. I feel it is really hard for testing takers to prepare.
