I had already taken (and failed) the test once. The only (big) difference was I did not take a live review and tried to self-study in 1 1/2 months after my educational requirement was finished with another provider. Big mistake. Taking the test this time was still difficult, but night and day. The Zahn Live Review helped cement a lot of information to my memory, but it really, most of all, provided so much insight into how the Board asks and wants you to answer questions - which is basically half the test. Throughout the exam, questions were triggering cues as to how to answer the question. There is a 10 question survey at the end of the exam between the last question and the results. I don't think I could have cared any less about any survey ever created than that one. Glad the first word I saw afterwards was "Congratulations!" though!
