I just did my exam in March and I didn't find the exam poorly worded or confusing at all. It was a tough exam for sure but just study your books and u should be fine. There is a rewrite but unfortunately its in Sept when the next exam group goes through. I know ESA puts on a 1 day refresher a few days before the exam and I hear they are a top shelf school. Check out their website for dates. As for the practical it was surprisingly easy. I was all prepped for a big crazy trauma and I got a simple poising. Plus the examiners where super laid back and friendly. The hardest part was definitely the written. Study up on ur Health and Emergency Acts stuff. Good luck man, hope that helps
Thanks for your response, I'm just about to take the exam. I'm not really worried about the scenarios just the written exam. Do you know if its a 70% or 80% that is required to pass? Also they are doing a refresher course before the exam and would you recommend taking it? I did the course in late February so I remember all the information but I just don't want to risk failing.

It was 70% when I took it last year. I took a refresher course but I really didn't think it was worth it after I was done. It was a pretty basic test.
What are your thoughts on this guys? would you provide information to others about the test to give them an advantage?
personally i think the best candidate deserves the job, using your resources to excel in any part of the process is smart. if someone were to be talking about what was on the test would you listen? and would you tell another applicant that you are competing against for a job what was on the test?
I would like to stir up some conversation about this.

I really couldnt agree more on that, though it would be nice to have a bit of specific information on what to focus on for your final review before the test. I do wish the best of luck for everyone writing, though I will likely not be volunteering information to other candidates about what to study before they write. I have chosen the earliest date in the week that was available to write, so I will not be trying to benefit from knowledge of the test from others. If everyone has the same opportunity and works hard, the best candidate for the job will be picked, I think that is the way it should be. I am really not overly concerned about this, I think the best candidate deserves the job, but I was curious about what others thoughts on this type of thing were. Thanks for the comment TheDeerIsRed.
