Is pronto pass for MPJE any good? I need to take the Louisiana MPJE and failed it twice already. So looking for good resources, besides Dr. Evans Law Review on his website. Any input or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Hello, so I had promised to post again if I passed the exam to help others who might be in the same boat as me. I am from out of state and already have a license from another state. However, the level of difficulty of Louisiana MPJE was something I did not expect. It was also really hard because I did not know anyone here and could not ask anyone questions. I took Louisiana MPJE for the third time and passed on the third attempt.

Things I used to study this time around:
1. Guide to Federal Pharmacy Law by Reiss and Hall. 9th edition.
- I read it cover to cover a few times, and took the practice exam in the back of the book. I then went back and reviewed all the answers and made sure I understood the answers.
2. Review slides and recordings from RASA, LLC - This is a website set up by a Louisiana pharmacy school law professor. The website is here: Services - it's only $35 to get the material.
I really think this site helped me a lot because the professor goes through each section of the law. He also gives out his email and phone number and I took advantage of this by emailing him questions or texting him whenever I was confused about something. He was always relatively quick to respond. HOWEVER, a caveat I have is that you cannot solely rely on the materials from here alone!!! I listened to the recordings and followed along on the slides once THEN
3. Louisiana BOP Laws and Rules: Louisiana Board of Pharmacy | State of Louisiana - I read ALL the required materials on here AT LEAST TWICE and filled in the gaps - this included Title 37 Chapter 14 Pharmacy Practice Act, Title 40 Public Health and Safety, and all the chapters in Title 46 Professional and Occupational Standards. People have posted that they just read the law book (http://www.pharmacy.la.gov/assets/docs/Laws/LB_2015_FINAL_Rev0708.pdf) but the last time this book was updated was in 2015 and I saw that there had been revisions in the Louisiana pharmacy law since then so I personally did not use this PDF.
4. Practice questions from pharmacyexam.com - I only bought the Louisiana MPJE questions. BUT if I had to do it over, I would've purchased the Federal Law questions AND the compounding questions package as well.

The exam was SO HARD - I walked out feeling like I definitely had failed again and was depressed for days. There was a good amount of federal law questions, state law questions, and sterile compounding questions (especially from USP 800). Know the basics of USP 795, 797, and 800. They also asked a lot of questions on what the board of pharmacy can or cannot do. There were so many questions on topics I didn't remember studying at all and was not sure where I would be able to find the answers. BUT whatever I used this time around definitely worked - passed with an 82! I really hope sharing my experience helps!

In addition, I took the exam on Tuesday (9/5) around 4pm - finished a little after 6pm. Received my score on Friday (9/8) around 4pm.
Louisiana scores are uploaded on the third business day after taking the exam and this has been consistent with the previous times as well.
