Passed part 1 with a score of 87%. I wrote a 1500 word blog entry about my experiences - what I did to prepare, what I read, what I thought, etc.
Note: I did not pay for any mock exams. I’m sure I would have scored above 90% had I done so. I don’t think paying money for a higher passing score is worth it. That isn’t learning for the sake of learning. It is learning specifically for a test. I recognize that many in this forum disagree. And that's fine. Different people have different goals.
