The FYLSX is discussed on my website above.
Those of us using distance education for law study must pass this exam.
Only 20% or so pass it each time. The California Bar limits the percentage that can pass it... sometimes the curve works for you - sometimes... not so much.
A buddy of mine passed it in June 2012, but the scale failed him. In October 2012, however, he wrote a failing score - but the scale pushed up his grade, and he passed!
In June 2012, I scaled out to a 441 - it is bad, you need a 560 to pass. I just goofed it all up. For the October exam, I analyzed what I did wrong (everything), applied corrective action and worked very hard to perfect my improved style.
I failed again in October, but my score jumped up 64 points. I can see that I am on the right track, so I must tweak my efforts to correct whatever errors I had been making.
I fully expect to pass in June 2013 - but I am not happy that it took me that long to see what I was doing wrong to correct it...
They say things happen for a reason... maybe it's true, so I'll see what shakes loose when I hit it for the third time in June 2013.

Best wishes for much success, always!
