Yes

Ten hour exam, roughly 550 topics, maybe 55% pass rate. Yeah it’s tough but very worth it

Yes it was tough, but took a crash course for the final. Guys name was Brett Danko. He was a rockstar and followed his advice to a T and passed first time. It was yrs ago but I think he still does the prep courses

Yes, he laid out what topics to focus on. He gives you an outline and a study plan. If you follow you should pass. He is super entertaining as well.

Wondering the same thing.
