Default Practice Exam Scores

I think it could be useful to see how everyone is doing on the practice exams and how we ended up doing on the real test. I'm sure most people haven't started doing them yet so feel free to post when you do and edit as we go.

From ASM 11th edition
PE 1: 27 + 1 guess= 28/35
PE 2: 24 + 2 guesses= 26/35. Also made 2 extremely dumb mistakes that cost me 2 more answers.
PE 3: 20 + 0 guesses= 20/35. This one was definitely harder than the first 2.
PE 4: 26 + 2 guesses= 28/35. Made at least 3 or 4 stupid mistakes that cost me.
PE 5: 27 + 2 guesses= 29/35. Would have gotten 2 more correct if I didn't type numbers in my calculator wrong.
PE 6: 28 +0 guesses= 28/35. As I was doing this I felt like I was doing horrible. I had 12 unasnwered by the time I got to the end. I was able to pick them off except 2. Although I got 5 wrong that I answered, one was a handwriting mistake and the other 4 I wasn't 100% confident.
PE 7: 28 + 1 guess= 29/35. This will probably be my last ASM practice exam. Im going to do the released spring '07 on Tuesday.

Real Exam: Passed! I guess randomly on 3 I believe. The rest I got an answer which matched an answer choice.
Real exam- 10

I've never found ASM practice exams to be helpful because they always have questions that require heavy integration or are on topics that the lessons would deem as "not likely exam questions."

The end of the lesson ASM questions is the place to be

I'm not sure why everyone thought PE 4 is the hardest. I think it's much easier than 3.
