    there were quite of lot of cultural based questions and alot of psychosocial. There was hardly anything on Medicare/Medicaid ( which I studied a heck of a lot of).

    I took the test yesterday. Not nearly what I expected. Will find out in 2-4 weeks if I passed.

    I just took the exam today; I can't tell how I did at all. I'm hoping since it is a computerized exam that I'll receive the results soon. A lot of what I studied was not on the exam, but I did study hard!

    Just took the test on Friday. I studied like a mad woman, and was surprised at how little the test touched on some topics. There was lots of psych questions.... counseling, drug addiction (AA), DSM's, etc. A few questions on HMO's/PPO's, and quite a few on the case management process...interpersonal skills (communication), the order of how to do things, etc. My question for the rest of you is how long to expect the results to be ready? I think a previous poster wrote 2-4 weeks. Is that pretty reasonable?
