Exam 5 71.8%
Exam 5A 75.5%
Exam 5B 67.9%
Exam 5 = Exam 5A + Exam 5B
What's funny is that this seems to imply 5B is harder than 5A. I thought it was the reverse... though 5B did contain more tedious (and unimportant) calculations.

Future Fellows article with exam survey (http://www.casact.org/newsletter/index.cfm?fa=viewart&id=6229)
Check out the survey results, especially "Exam length." 5B and 5 both scored very high on the exam length (meaning, "too long").
The lower pass mark for 5B probably reflects that.

Yep, the length of time to calculation simple averages. Good job EC. You took easy material and made it difficult by turning it into a calculator contest.

I really don't know how I can prepare better for next spring....
After 6C, I guess I'll spend 6 months weightlifting everyday to build muscles in my fingers for quicker writing and calculator punching......

I dunno man, all greater than or equal to 67% is a sick pass rate.
