Are GARP practice exams representative of actual exam?


I have come across some posts online that suggest the GARP practice exam questions may not be all that representative of the level of difficulty of the real exam questions - with the practice questions being seen as easier.

Could anyone shed any light as to whether this is true or not?

I am currently a CFA level 3 candidate (just passed L2 this year) and I have found that with the CFAI provided material, their mock exams are actually significantly harder than the real exam questions.

I much prefer this as it stops you building a false sense of security when studying etc and keeps you motivated.

I know Bionic Turtle take this approach too, providing questions that are deemed to be a notch above the exam difficulty level.

So...should I be expecting harder questions on the real FRM exam than those encountered on the GARP practice exams?
