Asked a question 10 months ago

I have taken the PTCB test twice and have not passed. I know they have updated it to just 4 parts. Has anyone taken the old one and new one and what makes it "easier" or better?

Where am I?

For future attempts of passing the P.T.C.E.; I would recommend the following:

The current-version book of Mosby's Review for the P.T.C.E.
