I also took the test this past saturday, but I wasnt looking at it as a test but more as measure of the things I learned. This helped me to not stress over it. I took a test prep class, that was part of my degree in coding and was based on the Carol Buck book, the instructor is a proctor for the exam so it helped. The main thing she stressed to us was the time to complete. I had 12 minutes to spare. The main problem I had during the exam, and it was only a couple of the questions, was the way they were worded threw me off. I agree there are no practice test you can take to fully prepare you, but if you can complete in the allotted time, know your modifiers and guidelines you should do well. Knowing these things will help you eliminate at least one of the choices given and then you can concentrate on the good possibilities. Also, do the easy ones first, i.e. if you are good at terms go to that section first and so on or if there are five questions and two of them only have two codes do those first. This will save you time because there are a few that have five or six codes to look up. Make sure you know the order to code as well, it helps.
Good Luck to you!
