    Four Stars Review by Amazon customer

    Problems were helpful and about the same caliber as those on the exam. (Posted on 11/10/2017)

    Very close to the actual exam. Review by Amazon customer
    Overall
    VERY similar to the exam. Some of the questions on the exam seemed like they were pulled from the book. I bought a ton of different books for all 3 exams. This one is probably right around the closest to the actual test, or at least tied with the PPI white book. the questions probably average slightly harder than the real exam, but overall is really great. Made it easy to pass. (Posted on 11/10/2017)
