First off, you should go back to the problems you missed and review those - methodology, formulas, etc. Make sure you know them like the back of your hand. Then, go back through the problems you got right and review why you got them right and how you interpreted the problem. Finally, once you're done with that (it should have taken you a while to do), there are sites on-line or manuals you can pick up. Check out the links to the "Free Weekly Exam P problems." Try those.

The bad news is that you should aim at 70% correct under regular test conditions. This is the range that assures of passing with something like 99% confidence. You are about 25% away from that, or about 7 problems away from that. That's a lot. This seems to indicate that there are topics you are missing, that were not covered in your probability class, or in a book you use. Download the sample exam I posted at the ASM web site: www.studymanuals.com/exam1.htm, and see how you do on this one under regular test conditions. If you are very far from 70%, you really need to make certain that you learn those "missing topics".
