I'm going to go through the All-10 manual and the NEAS seminar notes for the entire syllabus, but I would also like to pick the most important papers to focus some additional effort. Does anyone have any insights into which papers will have the greatest impact on exam score? How would you rank them?

This is the indication that I've received from coworkers:

1. McClenahan
2. Finger
3. Feldblum - WC
4. Feldblum - PA
5. Marker-Mohl

I suggest you make two lists of "Top N" papers

On one list, place the papers in decreasing order of (average) exam points per syllabus page.

On the other list, place the papers in decreasing order of average exam points per paper.

That should give you some idea about which papers are important.

The five most important papers for Part 5 are:

1. Your exam application form. (Without it, you can't register for the exam.)

2. Your exam booklet. (Without it, you won't know what questions are being asked.)

3. Your scantron to record your multiple choice answers

4. Your collection of essay sheets to record your essay answers

5. Your exam envelope with your signature (which is necessary to validate that your answer sheets can be graded).


All the rest is fluff.

You left out
0. Your exam fee. (Without it, forget all else) :D

Ah, but the exam fee can now be paid electronically. So, no paper. (But I agree the fee is critical.)

Based on points asked and the fact that it is difficult I would remove Marker and Mohl from your list of top 5.

I am not sure what to substitute, so why don't you list McClenahan twice.
Seriously.

Can't recall which but it was either the 2000 or 2001 exam 5 that had
about 13 points directly from McClenahan.

Enough said !
