It was harder than I thought it was going to be. I did most of my studying on the core manual and that didn't seem to bad but I think I slacked off in the other subjects. We'll see in a few weeks when my scores come in. If I passed it's on to the verbal next month or if I failed it's back to the books and another $100 so i can retest next month.... I'll post whether I passed or failed when I find out. Funny thing is, it wasn't hard at all if you study everything your supposed to.... The core section was mostly common sense. The math was tricky. The instructor said the state might be redoing the math section soon. The main part was figuring out what formula to use. The slides wheren't too bad. We had 10 slides plus two bonus slides. The classes really helped out a lot.
