Failed 1st attempt, 2 things
Failed on Friday (3MPs, 2BPs), painful, but moving beyond the pain and planning for next time. Due to my year period expiring end of March, I have to take it within 3 weeks, or re-apply, pay more etc.... so, going for it in 3 weeks, which leads to my first question.
1. I want to re-enroll for the test, but the Prometric site will not accept my eligibility number in order to re-enroll. I have not officially seen my grades posted yet (the facility was closing as I and two others were quickly ushered out, and I did not receive a copy of my grades), will they appear on the PMI site eventually when I log in? and do I have to wait for Prometric to update PMI with my test results, then get another eligibility id before I can re-enroll with Prometric. Find it hard to believe they are so tightly linked but maybe.
2. My main experience with the test that I have to pass along and would love feedback to see if others experienced similar tests, was that thru the majority of the test, I had a few formula problems sprinkled through here and there. I have to say that for all the practice problems I did and high comfort level I had going in, the math problems on the actually test were much more convoluted and not nearly as neatly, simply set up as any practice problems I did. But the clincher was that I was suddenly hit with about 10 compex formula problems in the last minutes of the test - yes, I did not move from my seat the entire 4 hours and needed all the time just to get through. I had actually been feeling very confident up until that point, and when I saw one math problem after another with each 'next' ... I had a slow sinking feeling that I was about to lose my opportunity for PMP.
Is this typical? I can't believe it can b,e as these questions are supposedly randomly generated, yet what bad luck that I would get them all in the end, when I was already drained and had no sense of gathering my thoughts in time to salvage the test. Also, if anyone has a good site for hitting the more complex presentation of these problems, please share.
