    Hello! Can someone point me to information on when new forms of the CPLEE come out? Is it every 3 months exactly?

    Hi everyone, I am taking the CPLEE next week but feeling very underprepared! I was curious for those of you who did not pass on the first attempt did you have to wait 3 months to take the exam again or just wait until the new version was released? Thanks so much!

    My understanding is you wait for the new form to come out. For some unlucky people, that's 3 months away. Others time their tests so they are close to the next form and can take it again quickly if they do not pass. Good luck!

    There is a facebook group! I forget exactly what it is called, but search CPLEE and it'll come up. The posts about the recent test make me optimistic that this version is better

    I took it in late April of this year. It was a little tricky, but I passed with study materials (but without any online practice tests). I think that there's a lot of anxiety around this test because of the low pass rates for January 2017 (around 63%), but I'd be willing to bet they adjusted it this quarter to be easier, because the pass rates went up to 75% the month I took it (check out the numbers here).

    I just want to note that this thread tends to bring in the folks who struggled with passing in the CPLEE section, so it is a non-representative sample of actual test-takers. Point being, before I took the CPLEE, I looked in this thread and saw how many people were talking about failing, and my anxiety spiked; I started to worry that I wouldn't pass, especially without any practice tests. In the end, I passed anyway because the majority of people who take it will pass.

    When I was looking around online during my CPLEE study phase, I wasn't able to find much of anything in the way of support or practice, so that'd be a good project for someone in here!

    I took the test yesterday. Besides 25 questions in total, I had no idea what I did in the entire exam. I kept second guessing myself, and this was suppose to be the more "reasonable" version of the exam. By the time I finished the test, I knew I had failed it. I came out of the testing room, gave the paper/pencil back to the staff and went to my locker to get my purse. I called my husband and told him I failed. Then, I turn around to get the printout of the result, and it said, "Congratulations, you passed." What????? I wish I had any word of advise because they can give me the same test again and I would still not know what to do with it.

    I passed yesterday! (FINALLY) This version was much clearer than the 2 that I failed previously, yet I still found some questions just boggling. They are written to trick you. This test is not about the content. It is about logic and reasoning. It is like arguing with someone but on paper. I hate this test. BUT I'M DONE !!!

    Passed the CPLEE today. It was a very clear test. Only maybe 5-6 questions were worded in an ambiguous way (in my opinion). I definitely overstudied (partially thanks to SDN panic) but I'd rather over than under study. Psychprep was fine, just took each exam and set of questions twice. They were more difficult than the actual exam questions. Good luck, everyone.

    This is nice to hear. I just passed EPPP and am hoping to use that momentum to take and pass the CPLEE in September. I imagine that if I fail in September I can turn around and retake it in October when the new form is released. How much time did you spend studying?

    Sounds like a good plan! I think I studied about 30-40 hours total.

    I also passed the CPLEE this week! Studied about 20-30 hours -- intensively for the two weekends leading up to my exam, and used PsychPrep. As others have said, I found their exams more difficult than the actual test. To study, I created flashcards based on the PsychPrep powerpoint slides to memorize specific info (e.g., timelines for reporting for elder abuse) and reviewed practice exams to learn test strategy/any info I'd neglected in my flashcards. Had no idea if I'd passed until I saw the paper, such a relief to be done! Good luck to those still powering through!

    Resurrecting this thread to continue to complain about how awful the CPLEE still is! Just missed the cutoff score by 3 questions. Ugh. For the life of me I could not point to a single question I know I got wrong. Studied with Psychprep, practice tests and all, and definitely know the material backward and forward... but the questions! They are so convoluted! There. I feel a little better griping into the internet ether. Guess I will have study some more but seriously don’t feel I could know the material any better. Any advice on learning the seemingly esoteric alchemical logic of the test would be welcome. So disappointed I still have this hurdle looming.

    I hear you! I found it to be much harder than I expected after studying, and each cycle of tests is different in terms of difficulty (passing percentages of past tests are listed on the board's site). I thought there were even some questions that were convoluted/multifaceted situations that weren't covered in my practice materials (and I didn't know which ethical principle trumped which).

    Did you have access to online practice tests? It might be worth it to get online access and/or look into other study materials. I had psychprep reading materials and the accompanying audio CDs with no practice test access. I did pass, but it was by no means easy for me.

    Unlike the Eppp where you may get hand-me-down practice tests here and there, the CPLEE is a newer and more specialized/localized test that doesn't have any freebie practice tests anywhere (that I could find), unfortunately. Several folks commenting in this forum have been just a few questions away from passing....very frustrating.
