Honestly, just study everything. No one test is the same. I took it twice. 1st time i asked about areas to focus on, got responses, didnt see much of those areas on exam day, and failed. 2nd time i seriously just studied everything. And i passed.

I’m turning 32 this year. Dating is abysmal on the apps. There are so many cases of people lying about their age, using outdated pics, or they already have SOs.

Screenshot is example of the top of guys on the apps — lied about his age to match w younger women. I have no interest in dating men 10+ years older than me.
