Question If you took CK this July: Fewer questions = longer questions?

Now that blocks are 40 questions max, can anyone tell me if the questions were longer--or took longer to do? Were there more connected sets, more abstracts, or (shudder) more drug ads?

(First post. Thanks guys, I really appreciate any info you can give.

Same style questions , the new forms are setup 7 blocks of 40q and 1 block with 38q which includes the abstract ... So you are still given more time for abstracts .
