So guys how is your feeling about the exam ?

Not great.

Opened my bag to take my exam things out before storing the rest, and no calculator.

Sat there with spare batteries and a screwdriver to open the back, but no calculator.

It’s gone. Not at home. Not anywhere.

It’s in the car underneath/in between the seats. Obviously.

Please tell me you gave it a shot anyways?

I am not sure if I made any serious mistake but I finished 25-30 minutes early in the AM and 35-40 minutes early in the PM. I have the feeling that the AM was much easier than previous years’ AM. PM is comparable to CFAI mocks, but the questions are more straightforward.
I am afraid that some of the pages in the exam book were stick together so I might accidentally skipped them. I usually finished the AM practice tests just on time.

Oops…that sucks.

I always bring 3 calculators with me just in case they go wrong. I don’t want to mess with batteries and screwdriver during the exam. Who knows if it’s the batteries or the calculator itself.

I brought 2 calculators with me, one was brand new that i just opened for 1 mock to make sure it worked and was saving it for the exam. I have 4 calculators now, maybe will will sell them off lol,

i could not take the exam due to work at office. went to the center in the evening to get the feel of the exam. 

should start studying already as I know the outcome for me.sad

It is not.

I did. I ignored any questions that needed calculations on a first pass, and then went back and worked through the calculating ones.

I have not had to do long division or multiplication of decimals for a while, so that was a whole lot of fun…

AM ran out of time.

PM was a little easier to manage, as I could at least eliminate answers by rounding up and approximating, but still got pushed for time, and at least 5 questions I just filled ‘B” as the clock ran down.
