I took mine yesterday and passed. It's challenging, but manageable if you study the material on the website. Took me about 45 minutes to complete.

Here is some good info with links. I have some friends who already took it and passed.
I have a 333 and am a private pilot so I just had to take the online test.

Attached is some great info as well.
Date effective: August 29, 2016  
The following sample exam for Unmanned Aircraft General (UAG) is suitable study material for the Remote Pilot Certificate with a small UAS Rating. These questions are a representation of questions that can be found on all Unmanned Aircraft General tests. The applicant must realize that these questions are to be used as a study guide, and are not necessarily actual test questions. The full UAG test contains 60 questions. The Application Identification, Information Verification and Authorization Requirements Matrix lists all FAA exams (matrix for UAS is attached until test activation). It is available at http://www.faa.gov/training_test ... testing_matrix.pdf.  
The FAA testing system is supported by a series of supplement publications. These publications include the graphics, legends, and maps that are needed to successfully respond to certain test questions. The FAA-CT-8080-2G, Airman Knowledge Testing Supplement for Sport Pilot, Recreational Pilot, and Private Pilot has the supplemental graphics necessary to assist in answering any question on a UAG exam referring to a figure. It is available at http://www.faa.gov/training_test ... c_private_akts.pdf.  
The Learning Statement Reference Guide for Airman Knowledge Testing contains listings of learning statements with their associated codes. Matching the learning statement codes with the codes listed on your Airman Knowledge Test Report assists in the evaluation of knowledge areas missed on your exam. It is available at http://www.faa.gov/training_test ... ReferenceGuide.pdf.

I'll be honest I took it with a little studying and failed. Go back in 2 weeks. I have never been good on test to say the least. Bad thing was she said you need this paper to retest and I went to my moms and her dog which we gave her jumped in my car and tried to get him out and he pissed on my seat, of course the paper was on the seat. hahaha. It was a bad day

I just passed!! Have to say a lot of the questions were not on the study guide, really study up on the different classes of airspace and requirements..Thought I had it wired and was sweating!! I went through easy stuff and then went back on tricky questions..a few times..83% but like to understand more about the ones I missed..and you can't really find out the correct answers...
It's not super easy, but just a matter of learning the flight operations around airports. 40% I say!! cheers D

Just got back from taking the test. Missed 5, made a 92. 3 I missed were on airspace and there were quite a few on that subject. I've never had a good handle on airspace. Too many exceptions and conditions. Missed 1 (out of 1 question on METARS) on weather reports - you can't always figure out what it means unless you just memorize them. And missed 1 on something so off-the-wall that I can't even remember what it was. Anyway, now I wait until I can apply for my certificate (24-48 hrs hopefully), and then apply for one or more waivers. Not expecting success on that.

I took the test and failed. I studied from a website called licensetobuild.com which was a total mistake. I had about 20 questions about airspace and sectional maps, and it just so happened that I missed about 12 of them. It was rough for me.

I found that if you use the study guide, including the references outlined in the end of the study guide, you will do fine. It is a lot of information. Also, when using an aeronautical chart, there is a legend in the front that describes what several symbols mean (to include airspace annotations, vfr communications, etc). This is helpful knowledge on the exam.

I took the exam and made Passed. 80.  it was very hefty on airspace classifications, air chart data so definitely know sectionals and the legend.  The Dauntless drone prep app for 40 bucks is a great tool for the exam. It's what I used. It will run you through the ringer.
Good luck!
