I did the self study package (the $699 one). The one with the book, flash cards, and online material. Basically, I just went through the book (read once, skimmed the next will writing notes), wrote notes, and did the practice test. Was able to pass on the first try. A lot of people said they didn’t. However, if you sit down and read for understanding and not memorization then you should be fine. They give you a lot of time to prepare for the test (I think 6 months). So, don’t feel like you have to rush to get it done. Use all the time you will need.
