I bought the online course from the ICC that has the flashcards/quiz/practice exam. I passed the practice exam with an 85% without having to look at the books at all.

I still feel like I'm going to get tripped up on the real exam. I dont get reimbursed for the $219 bucks if I dont pass, and as I'm only working part time, that $219 is kind of a big deal to me.

Any advice on how to make sure I'm ready for it?

I have used England training to pass most of my icc exams. They have been very helpful for me. The best 69 bucks I have spent on my future. Hope they can be of benefit for you as well. https://www.ibcode.com/

Just in my opinion, but if you passed the practice exam you'll have no problem with the real test. This one was far and away the easiest one I took.

I took it tonight and passed! It was tougher than I thought, it was a lot less about the IPMC and a lot more based on the IRC and the Legal Aspects, but I studied my butt off and got it the first shot!

Awesome, congrats!
