This is correct - we update it each sitting and release it around the time people start their review (i.e., after their first read-through). I believe last time we posted it on the PAK Forum, but it may have been in one of the downloads as well, depending on your package.

This makes sense. I was so swamped between work, materials, and problems that I barely had time to examine the forum last sitting.

One criticism I have with PAK (may not really be a criticism for a lot of folks) is that the number of materials they provide seems overwhelming at times. Wish stuff was a bit more organized so we can digest it in pieces.

And yeah I failed. This was my second attempt and I received the same score (3) as last time. Disappointing, considering I felt like my study time was a lot more productive this time around. The particular set of questions on the exam were not at all aligned with what I felt the most comfortable with, and the amount of writing involved led me to run out of time. C'est la vie.

I'm now mulling over the possibility of switching to the LRM exam because the CERA is less important to me than FSA and I scored very well on the extension material last time and I expect to do so again this time.

Passing percentages are up - just a 34.5% rate (36.5% effective) for this past sitting. Down from 40.1% (42.3%) in the spring.

A much bigger drop than I was expecting, especially considering the consensus seemed to be that the October sitting was much easier.

This is the lowest ERM pass rate... since at least 2012.

No wonder considering Q3 of 14 points. It was very general. I wrote tons of pages and I did not feel that off topic. Turns out I got a 2. I guess I was way off topic.
