Looking for info about what to get. I have a copy of the reference handbook.

Is it a hard test?

I haven't written the test (don't plan to anymore). But here's some background info that might help.
I remember talking to people from APEGGA (they proctor the test) that Canadian grads do quite well. Over 90% pass and the average mark of APEGGA writers is ~80 per cent, compared with a ~60 per cent average attained by all NCEES writers.
Basically if you passed your university courses you should do alright.

Obviously craming 4 years of theory in 8 hours sucks, but from looking at sample questions, they start with basic math (linear alegbra, integration) and chemistry/physics (high school/1st year university courses).

The afternoon portion is your specialization.
