I had the exact same experience as you Kristy.   I am a slower reader and that was the greatest challenge for me too with the number of questions to complete.

The suggested reading material was overkill and not actually relevant.  Having Exposure and experience to many energy modeling situations was the best benefit for myself to pass the exam.

I didn’t feel there was enough time allotted for the number of questions asked, so you might want to do some practice tests where you do your best to brush up on your speed reading skills.  J
