The big change is the plotting portion of the exam. The plotting portion of the exam used to be 10 questions with a passing grade of 70%. The new test is 20 questions with a passing grade of 90%.

Good Luck.
YIKES! thanks for the info. I just dug my license out of the files and I've still got two years left, phew.

Edit: I would opt for the class after having done it on my own initially, too much time and poor long term retention of important info. because of the huge volume of material needed to study (or it might be early onset of senility :-))
