16th for me. I'm trying to take only 6's now so I've stopped working with my EL. Did a 4 last night for speed and got 26/30.

I'm taking it the 21st and I went up to a 5.5 last weekend on my 7th Adapt exam. Hoping to get to a 6 by this weekend.

Finally hit 7 tonight. However, I was familiar with some of the questions from past exams. I am mostly trying to drill the assumptions and CF definitions.

I feel like there's some response bias aqui. Everyone here has like a 5.5 or higher. Holla if you're under a 5 and need to start bustin' ass!

Stuck at EL 6, getting 70% on EL 6 exams after x70 3-question quizzes and x6 practice exams. AM I SAFE?!


Apparently CAS exam 9 is like a giga-version of this exam.
