The next closest test is scheduled for July 20th, but I have no formal background in the test material, aside from what ive learned on my own from this, and other sites. Basically what id like to know is how hard the test was for people who have passed it, and if i have enough time to learn the material i need by the test date, tips appreciated :)

start studying NOW!!! I'm a senior in exercise science, and I crammed for about 10-12 hours with the practice exams and study guides a week before the exam, and I think I did alright, but there were still quite a few questions I wasn't sure about. I would get the book and start reading about a chapter or two a week, get some study guides maybe, and the practice exams were a huge help to me. It's not easy, but not impossible, but for your background being only 18 and probably a HS senior or college frosh I would really spend a lot of time on this so you don't fail.
