Hello folks! Just wanted to let you know I passed the exam on the first try! I am a clinical social worker at the VA which does not require us too often to have to be apprised of Managed Care and everything that goes along with case managing clients who can get most of their needs met through the VA. I read the text cover to cover, read the online CMBOK start to finish, studied the glossary and took the practice exam a few times. Of course I took the workshop too! Long story short, this proved to be the formula for passing the exam on the first try for me!
