What is the best way to study for this exam? Course material + Past papers? Would that be sufficient?

Source material + past exams (is this what you meant?)

The source for Exam 5 is great.

Let's see if moving to a new company who will actually let me take all of my study hours will help me pass this exam. Got a 4 this sitting (3rd attempt) with no study time taken, so hopefully.

Thing is that I've taken this exam 5 times now. I'm going into my 6th attempt. I took in 2010 (2) , 2011 (2) , 2018 (Excel both 2 and October - 5), and 2019 (April - 4). My scores have no logic to them. I'm mostly numb because really don't know what I need to do to pass but just retake again like most people do who fail.
