Thumbs up I passed the exam today! About ICE....

Ah..What a relief! I passed the exam today.
I think I have something to say about the ICE sample test..
Take the sample test to get familiar with the format and style of the questions, but don't take into heart too much about the score.

My score on the ICE sample test was about 70-72% , as a result , my confidence on the real exam was about 60%. But I did pass the exam with 75% in one shot! The funny think is that during the sample test I scored the lowest (50%) in dynamic modeling, but I get 91% on the real test.

A few tips:
1. Start with Fowler's book, as most of you did.
2. Play with sample test to get a feel of questions.
3. Real Larman's book cover to cover. I know, I know, it's not the most interesting book to read for exam preparation. At the least, try to UNDERSTAND the 'highlight' in the box. I did a quick glance of every paragraph in the book IN 3 DAYS! and jog down things that are 'intriguing' , especially the suggestions he made. You will find that technique very helpful in the exam!!!
4. Yes, 70% of questions in exams involved diagrams, more complicated one than the sample test, but they often repeats
5. The wording in the exam is much more clear!
6. I also read every threads in this forum regarding exam too.
my 2 cents. Hope this helps
