Needless to say, I didn't re-check my answers either. The final result was a 50%. I want to sit for it again in a few weeks but unsure of how to proceed from here.

Do I re-take all the Enthuware tests but more closely monitor time on each question? Are there other practice tests sources I should try where I haven't seen the questions so much? What do you guys suggest? I don't wan to overuse the same resources and get over-confident, however, I don't want to use bad practice tests either.
