Sorry bro..they don't exist. Find someone who recently completed it and get their highlighted notes. The last few guys in the squadron to do it have been gutting it out.

if one had a bro who recently completed it, that may be a good start. if one doesnt have a bro, but has google, he could search for allpme.com. if both of those fail to provide help, one could just read the book and take the test.

they change the versions so often its easier to just read the damn book and take the test imo. seriously though, try to read it in one week and take the test asap. you're not going to remember the material from the beginning of the book a month later. 7 books, 350-500 pages per book.

i hated it, you will too. it sucks. sorry dude.

What we did, back in the day, was to get 5 or 6 guys from the squadron, or our sister squadron, and we'd all apply for the course at the same time. Then we'd divide and conquer. Unless you're the true exception, it's almost impossible to finish those courses in the allowed time, without help from your friends. Good luck. Better you than me.

Is AllPME not good currently?

I fell into the gap when 4.0 turned into 4.1 and everything on AllPME was for the previous version. That was also the last time that there was some PME cheating scandal ('05-ish) and we had to sign the "I will not cheat" statement before starting ACSC. Unfortunately, I had to gut it out with just solo study...and it ended up taking the full 18 months, ouch.

I received another mandatory "I will not cheat" signing just this last month for AWC...I'm guessing there was another big test compromise somewhere, so that may have forced all the schools to change tests again.

If they still do it by seminar, that is definitely the way to go. Each guy takes a lesson and does the "dirty purple" for the lesson. Seminar meets, the lesson "taught" (quick and dirty synopsis unless the ACSC monitor is in town for an observation) by the guy responsible for that lesson, dirty purple questions answered an it was off to the club for Taco Tuesday. Wife thinks you are at seminar and the beers and tacos at the club flowing. Seriously though, it was the path of least pain back in the day. Study the purples and take the test. Only really have to delve into one or two lessons depending on the size of the seminar group.

I just finished test 6 of 5.2. I did allpme, but as of a few months ago they had not updated from 5.1 and wouldn't respond to emails. BUT, there are some good contacts in the forum section. You could give it a shot!

That is a lot easier than solo, and is also authorized (seminar format). Don't get caught using the gouge.

Seminar has to be better, but if you're short on time I recommend going in like John Wayne...worked for me: passed the first one by 1 pt doing it that way with 4 hours of jamming. Heck, had to...was leaving for a 6 week deployment in 2 days and only had three months left before my time limit expired. If I can do it 90% can do it.

Concur...Passed the final three tests cold turkey, no studying, no cramming. They are not that difficult.
