MATE Seminars and TIA each offer study guides and seminars to help prepare for the exams. They are not required readings, but most candidates use some form of outside help.
Thank you!

For the past several sittings the # of passers has been stagnant around 120, regardless that more and more people were taking the exam each sitting. This time there were 148 passers so maybe they were a little more lenient this time.

I got a 4. I was expecting a 0 or a 1, so it gives me hope for this next sitting.

Any tips on not getting sluggish for the afternoon session? Lunch usually makes me sleepy. I doubt I will fall asleep during an exam, but I might run low on energy.

It probably matters what you eat, and how much you eat.
