Okay, for the first timer and seasoned specialty exam taker. Let's pass it this time.

I'm in! Just passed Advanced! Probably order the study materials next week. Debating between MATE and TIA. I used MATE for Core and Advanced, so likely going to stick with that method.

Even though I’m very upset about failing after all that I did earlier, Ive convinced myself:
-My family doesn’t care I’m mad I failed
-the soa doesn’t care I’m mad I failed
-the others that also failed and the people that just passed advanced that are competing for a pass this time with me definately don’t care I’m mad I failed
So I should stop feeling sorry for myself and should just get going on this again today and get it done this time

I care and I'm also mad. I'm happy others passed, but also pissed that some people are saying they bombed 4b but passed, where I think I messed up just one small part and failed...rant over. I gotta study again, and was hoping I was done with these exams.

Best of luck to everyone

Yep this is how I feel. I think the question coverage was a little BS but had we been asked more questions even 3 hrs/ 60 pts instead I think the variance would go way down.

I'm expecting to see like 1, 10, 10, 1 (or something in that direction) on Monday's score result.

I thought specialty was much much more difficult than advanced.
