I think I was smoking something for switching the order. Then I kept getting so close that I took 4 three sittings in a row. Luckily for me, 3rd time was the charm, so I will not be rejoinging you in May with Course 4. If everyone here is being honest it is onward and upward to Course 6.

Is it just me or everyone agree on this:

May exams are usually easier than November exams. For instance, May 2000 is easier than November 2000. May 2001 is easier than November 2001.

I agree with TP that November 2000 was the hardest one so far.

I thought this exam was right on par with the last couple of exams. This was my 3rd time taking it however so the stuff should make sense to me by now, but I definitely answered 8 to 10 more questions correctly on this one than the May 2001.

This was my first time sitting for course 3. I didn't look at the previous exams until about a week before this exam, to use them as practice tests. I got 33 on May 00, 32 on Nov 00, and 22 on May 01. So I would say of those 3, May 01 was the hardest. However, my scores could reflect that the study guide I used (Actex) was written after Nov 00 and so incorporated test questions from the 2000 tests into the material. (I don't know if that's true; just speculating).

FWIW, I thought the Nov 01 exam was slightly easier than the May 01 exam.

I'm going to have to try to recreate my answers to see what my score might be.

No More 3: Congrats! and good luck on Course 6. Unfortunately, I received a 5 and a 4 on Course 4, in that order, before I decided to switch to Course 3. Maybe my third time at Course 4 will also be a charm.
