Listen first, fly second. Make sure you are making the audio calls moreso than flying the plane. I heard playing video games with a inverted y axis will help as well. It took a few tests to get used to the inverted axis so I lost points there. You get after a while tho
Why do you say listen first fly second does that help more

The instructions will give you 3 different problems that could arise while you are following the planes with your throttle and joystick. Write down the procedures to fix each issue when they’re given to you before starting. That will make it a lot easier. The instructions basically tell you to turn different knobs on the joystick and throttle to high, low or medium. For me, it was kinda hard to tell what low and high were so I had to look at the gauges on the lower right hand side of the screen as I moved the knob.

Just took my first attempt today… 48 5/5/6. Was pretty disappointed but not entirely surprised as I’ve been transitioning jobs/cities/apartments which has consumed most of my study time. With a 3.74, am I still competitive for NFO? I’m open to retaking the test and have plenty of time since the next board is in May, but my OR said my scores would be fine with my GPA.

I would say retake. Your GPA is good but your scores aren't competitive. The test isn't that bad and I'm almost certain you'll do better the second time around once you know what to expect. I plan to retest as well and I got 55 and all 7's.

Any chance you could give some gouge on questions that caught you off guard? Also I'd say retake it. You'll probably do better and you have plenty of time.

Study and retake. Although the minimums are what they are, 7's in AQR, PFAR, & FOFAR give you a 50/50 shot.
