I took an additional two hours to finish. Was this the test where candidates didn't finish because it was too bloomsy?

was planning on starting with the 2009 PE and working my way up from there...maybe I'll throw in a few questions from GLM/Banhmann/Fisher every other day just to stay fresh on those as well, since they won't be represented in the earlier exams. Hoping that way I can still get super fast at solving the type of questions that have been on they syllabus since forever
