FAR was brutal. I have no clue how I performed other than on Testlet 1, which was a breeze--almost too easy. It went downhill from there...Testlets 2 & 3 were quite difficult, and the sims were no picnic either. I'm certain that I missed most or all of 1 of the 7. On a couple of others, I know that I missed at least part of them. My research sims were difficult. All in all, I could have scored a 50 for all I know. Perhaps I'll get lucky and get a 75. No way did I pass with flying colors.
Mistakes I made that I need to avoid next time (I hope there is no next time, but just in case):
1.Spent too much time rereading questions and checking answers in Testlet 1. I spent 45 minutes on it, but could have finished in 25.
2. Began to panic during Testlets 2 & 3, and ran a bit over my time budget. Panicking interferes with my ability to focus.
3. Allowed myself 1.5 hours for the sims; 1.75-to-2 hours would have been ideal.
4. Took the exam without adequate sleep. I have insomnia. I should have scheduled an exam for the late afternoon or evening.
Well, that's it. I'm beat. Now begins the minimum 3-week wait.
