I dont care who writes the exam, those people here who did write it know themselves. Sure the exam can be a little hard , but is it necessary to put those stupid format in there like SATA's , drag and drop..*** is that? its useless..where in grade school anymore. This exam is the most stupid exam i have ever taken. Im sorry ..for me its the the test of true competency of an individual..Your the one who said it "minimal competency" for all i know minimal means easy q's ...not like a medical q's..this not a medical exam..its a nursing exam...GOT IT!
