Hah, I was just highly motivated after failing in May. I didn't want to leave any uncertainty regarding a pass. There were many nights that I would be working late, wouldn't get home until 9pm or 10pm, make myself some coffee, and hammer out a practice exam. In the end, I realized that I had studied too much for this exam, but it was worth guaranteeing myself a pass.

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.
22 on the 4th....sigh. Just a ton of stupid mistakes, and not remembering lognormal/normal calculations.

I'm taking the 5th tonight in addition to going over a bunch of the lesson questions.

For what it's worth: I took another ASM PE and got a 24 (I think). I passed on exam day by a wide margin. Don't be discouraged if you're scoring in the low twenties.
