Default ASM FM Study Guide

For those of you who used the ASM Study Guide (I have the 12th edition) by Harold Cherry, how close in difficulty are the practice exams compared to the actual exam? Thanks.

I used that same manual and took FM this month. I found the difficulty quite comparable. There were a few problems on the exam that seemed a little like curveballs, but I'm pretty sure I was just making dumb mistakes on them. Overall, I was really happy with the manual.
