Questions on Multiemployer plans and Cost Methods

Can anyone tell me: how many Multiemployer questions were there total on the exam? (Including Cost Method questions). Of those questions, do we know the point values of each? Finally, and I know I'm stretching everyone's memory, do we know which question numbers they were on the exam?

I'm mostly looking to see what damage I've done by not studying the Multiemployer stuff well. If anyone can help me I would be extremely grateful.

If I had to guess, 6 or 7 and most of them were at least 3 points. I would guess about 25 points.

I was keeping a mental tally of the points on multiER and I stopped when I reached 14 or 15 and there were only 1-2 more after that... I'm more inclined to think around 20 points.. but then again I also didn't study multiER so my mind could be playing tricks on me and my recollection of the number of questions after I stopped counting the points.

CyclingActuarian - I was doing the same thing, until I too became depressed and stopped counting.

Let's just say, I hope the answer to all the Multiemployer questions is "C."

It sounds like quite a few students decided to simplify their studying by ignoring the multiemployer topic. So that means you are in good company!

Yes, I agree. Plus it seems like the problems were tricky even for the people who did study the material.
