You don't need a license to be broke.

I failed two of nine. Just keep at it, you'll get there.  Is there still a six month waiting period to retake? That's the sucky part.

Yikes, I have BDCS in two weeks.....sorry to hear. I know it's frustrating. Any advice?


I have only failed PPP so far. I did well on the exam but I rushed the vignette and must have missed something. It was easy and I'm kicking myself for failing. Oh well, chin up.

Ahh, but, you do need a license, and a Masters (preferably Ivy), and many years of experience to practice the genteel brand of poverty we are noted for and proud of.

I said broke, not destitute.

i would say make sure to study the vignettes, i passed all but the ramp, i think i know where my mistake was tho. also i use the kaplan and ballast, the aggravating thing is it seems most of the stuff coverd in the material was not on the exam :(

I failed one cause I took the section in the wrong place in the vignette and realized it right at the end. It's like flushing money down the toilet.
