well, some thoughts about my experience of FAR-
First of all, my first testlet is the easiest one and it got harder when I proceeded to second and third and I would say , the third testlet is the hardest one for me.(I have around 8 questions checked for review on third testlet) In addition, I would say concept and calculation questions are half and half for all three testlets.
Sim- The first simulation is doable -very straightforward. Second one is hard and all tabs are from different topics. I didn't find answer for the research question on my second simulation. Nailed both written communication. But majority my simulations are related to JEs...so please try to do JEs when you practice the questions on FAR.
I completed the whole test 20 mins eariler..I should have slowed down a bit doing MQCs...
PS. My test center (Worcester, MA) didn't have AC. It was extremely hot over there. Dress accordingly pls. I didn't know about it so I dressed with long T- shirt and pants. I regreted. Please call ur test center to see if AC is on or not. Temperature really can affect your mood and concentration. In the end, I couldn't even use the 20 minutes left for checking my answers. I felt overheated. My brain was dead that time so to speak.
Now is waiting game. Wish we all pass. I certainly don't know if I would pass or not. I never felt good walking out of the test center. This time -no exception. However, somehow I passed another two. So we will see.
Best of luck.
