I took the Exam several years ago when they were using the old format. I have a friend interested in taking it now. Can anyone give us a idea of how hard it is??Now its on the N.E.C. format so I;d say it must be easier???? am I right??

It would have to be easier---it couldn't get harder than when they had that old style codebook. I took it 6 years ago and failed miserably. 150 questions in 4 hours and I didn't even answer 1/3 of them....

The test is very hard in my opinion. I took it almost two years ago. If I remember correctly the test is now 200 questions in 4 hours. I had about 10 minutes left and I went home with a headache.
