Total Scaled Score: 1366.
Raw MBE: 139. I spent much less practice time on these that I have in the past because, due to prior commitments, I had only about six weeks to study. I figured I should spend what time I did have on my weakness, which is the essay portion of the exam. Unfortunately, I had forgotten many of the rule definitions and, as a result, I spent too much time reviewing outlines during my essay writing practice. That's not an excuse, I'm sure I could have made better use of my time. I don't have the same time-crunch challenge this time so I should be better prepared.
Raw written: 560. See explanation above.
Total Scaled: 1366.
Of the seven exams I've taken, I've scored between 1360 and 1400 on five of them. My MBE scores seem reliable, despite the fact that this exam had many more head-scratchers than exams past. So it appears I'll be spending my time improving my writing skills, starting first on reviewing the rules again. The difference this time is that I do actually have three months to fix the errors in my writing style that I was shown before the last exam, but which I had little time to fix.
Those of you who are gong to throw stones, heave away. Nothing you say will discourage or deter me. I will get this. My goal, and the path to achieve it, are clearer now than they have ever been. If you can't bear to look, then avert your eyes. There will likely be less to look at this time than in times before, anyway.
I've already submitted my application for February 2011, so those of you who will advise me to skip an exam can also save your breath (your typing time?)
For everyone else, here we go again.
And as someone I saw on TV recently said ... "Don't retreat. Reload!"
That advice, I'm taking.
