    I just used Saunders and did 100 questions a day...After taking it I realized that I might as well have took the exam like a few of my classmates the week after graduation. Nothing that I studied for was on the exam...felt like it was a complete waste of my time studying and doing questions. I could have taken that exam the first week out and got the same results
