    Hard to tell. You have to read the materials yourself and have your own feeling.

    I have heard many different stories. Some people graduated from top school with good grades may say those exams hard while many people say those exams are not very hard.

    1. Is it possible? Of course it's possible; the better question is "how easy will it be?" Only you can answer that.
    2. How hard should you read? As hard as you need to pass the exam. That's true whether you're working on a degree or not.
    3. What should you be sure of? That you really do want to go through the exams.
