I'd be glad to hear something about your study schedule. What books did you use? How long did you study?

personaly i think that score between 220 -230 is very decent score. mean is around 225.

Go ahead for step 2 !

Anything above 220 is a pretty good. Comes out to be >94 on the previous scale so don't worry. But it is essential that you do better or equal on CK.

Good Luck!
