Just passed the exam despite of leaving 5 questions unanswered due to lack of time. Got a 73, I think I could've gotten higher but I am glad to score above 61.

The exam itself was less complex compared to the K&B practice exams, I think because the way I took these practice exams I reviewed simple answers 3 or 4 times before moving on. That killed most of the time for me in retrospec. The takeaway for me was studying the practice exam questions, other than memorizing APIs and rules. I didn't encounter any serialization questions like everyone said, and I came across more .io questions than i would've liked. And the questions went from simple to hard instead of a random mix. Hope this helps.

What is mean by the retrospec?
Is it in the exam objectives?

It's actually retrospect -- and it is an english word (retrospect definition). The term "in retrospect" is actually a very common phrase -- in the U.S. at least.

Congratulations Tse Wu.

How many practice exams did you complete before taking the test?

What sort of scores were you getting on your last few practice exams?

I took both practice exams in the book, first time I scored a 55 and the second time was 60. I didn't do the timed test and took my time to solve the issues. From what I have gathered if you scored about this range passing shouldn't be a problem. I also started on the supplemental practice exam book but never got far with it since I ran out of time to prepare. Let me know if you need help on the topics.
