I have.  It is definitely challenging and I believe it to be one of the more detail-oriented and experience-based exams, but it is certainly passable.  I highly recommend paying attention to all the terminology/equipment/gear in U.S.P. 800 and its situational application of handling hazardous materials and waste. Also, make sure you know some of the N.I.O.S.H. tables as is listed in the exam guide.
Having U.S.P. 797 knowledge will help tremendously as well.
Make sure you are familiar with the guidelines the P.T.C.B. has posted and you will too be pulling from your own compounding experience.
