Pass & Done

Postby jason_campigotto » Thu Apr 12, 2018 9:16 am

After far too much procrastination, I am officially done with the ARE's.
Thank you Coach - the dedication towards engaging this forum's user base is commendable, I appreciate all the comments provided over the past couple of years.

SS Final Words & Approach:
1. Thaddeus - watched 2x, minimal notes on provided worksheets, FF'd through a lot of the second review.
2. FEMA & BAR - as has been said countless times, necessary reads IMO, read through 2x.
3. Ballast & Kaplan - Quick reads to brush up on general topics, skipped all math / calculation related questions.
4. Kaplan 468 Questions - Went through them all, paying close attention to the answers.
5. Jenny's & Rich's notes - brief review the day(s) before writing.

From my experience, ~ 15% of questions required calculation, encountered a heavy bias towards choose 3/4 type questions (which I personally despise). While the vignette (purchased coaches video and followed it to a 'T') was one of the easiest, I certainly did not feel any semblance of confidence upon leaving the testing center. Add to that almost two weeks prior to receiving the pass... Suffice to say, tonight I shall celebrate!

Good luck to all and again a sincere thank you for the help.
