Simple question, has anybody who took this free exam and did well (> 90%) on it, for whatever reason NOT scored well on the actual CK exam?

I am confused b/c I did well on that exam but I have been scoring in the mid 50% on UW - seems to be disconnected. I would like to do pretty well on the actual exam and am trying to see where I stand.

Any insight into what, if anything, that free exam may mean would be helpful. The free exam for step I was 2 points away from my actual score (using, so I wonder if there is any similarity.
