Does anyone know how the TIA wording is compared to ASM/Mahler/The actual Exam?

I've only been working with TIA, so I'd like to know if I should do a few practice exams from the other manuals. Maybe I can pick them up from co-workers. I'm sure someones still got the material laying around somewhere.

This is my second time taking the exam. I used ASM for my first sitting and had done most of the PE's before. I had never done the Mahler or TIA PE's before though.

Exams are listed in the order in which I took them. I combined Mahler's small 20-question exams into bigger 40-question exams. Oh, and I stole Josia's formatting because it looked cool.

Mahler

01: 28 / 40 = 70%
02: 26 / 40 = 65%
03: 36 / 40 = 90%
04: 29 / 40 = 73%
05: 29 / 40 = 73%
06: 31 / 40 = 78%
07: 31 / 40 = 78%

ASM version 10

01: 32 / 35 = 91%
02: 28 / 35 = 80%
03: 20 / 35 = 57%
04: 29 / 35 = 83%
05: 29 / 35 = 83%
06: 26 / 35 = 74%
07: 31 / 35 = 89%
08: 32 / 35 = 91%
09: 31 / 35 = 89%
(decided to skip 10)

TIA:

01: 29 / 35 = 83%
02: 29 / 35 = 83%
03: 35 / 35 = 100%
04: 31 / 35 = 89%
05: 30 / 35 = 86%

I highly recommend TIA's practice exams just for the fact that they have this awesome simulation of the CBT environment. It has same colors as Prometric, same timer, and same distribution tables. I missed three problems on my first PE just because I was getting those test day jitters from how much it seemed like the real thing.

Past Exams:

0Fall 2005: 29 / 30 = 97%
0Fall 2006: 32 / 32 = 100%
0Spring 2007: 34 / 34 = 100%

ETA: Got a 10 on the actual exam.

Anyone else have any results from TIA?

I think I had 21/35 on the 1st and 22/35 on the second.

Just took my first ASM PE and got a 22. Test is only a couple days away. I'm hopeful but wish I had more time.

23 on the third.

Also, I never count guesses. If I can't solve a problem, I leave it blank. At least for the PE's. For the exam I'll be saying many prayers.

WOw bobby, dude, just the mere fact that you could sit and take all those exams under exam conditions is astounding! Nevermind the scores, which are astounding by themselves. Can I borrow your brain?
