    TeXJ Will you find out immediately after or is there some long process that you have to wait for?

    Yeah this is a 4 hr test. They are only going to give me 1 15min break. I'm definitely going to take it.

    Yeah with quaritine it wasn't too bad to be inside. Just here in Texas the spring is the best time to go outside before the hot temps get here. Hit 90 today...

    THANK YOU!!! I need it lol
    I enjoy taking exams and have a few tricks to share as well.

    Last October I took the SE II (Structural Engineering Level 2) exam, one of the most difficult exams in the world (pass rate hovers around 20%), which is 16 hrs long. Two consecutive 8 hr days. 80 multiple choice questions and 8 essay style questions. With (1) bathroom break I had mere minutes to spare. This test was so intense that I slept ~14 hrs a day for the three days afterwards to recuperate. And I was still tired!

    - Excellent sleep the night before. I'm talking 10-11 hours if you can get it.
    - Good breakfast. Nothing extreme, but some high quality foods that can satiate and sustain you for a while.
    - Prepare beforehand to be as organized as possible. All your references and calculators and tools neatly organized.
    - Have brain stimulating snacks on hand. I'm talking pistachios, green tea, dark chocolate (not Hershey's), things like that. This helped perk me back up after lunch, and in the afternoon.
    - Don't stress about the time. Just work through the problems. Be cognizant of the time, but only when you choose to check it to determine how much time is remaining. Adjust on the fly and continue working.
    - Study up on test taking strategies beforehand. There are a few neat little tricks that can make a big difference in performance.

    Best of luck.

    Also, the only suggestion I ever make on long tests (not sure if this is one) is to take a break every hour. Just getting up and walking away for a moment is great for the brain. I always say I have to use the bathroom and walk there, wash my face and walk back. Soak in the sun too for a moment if you have a minute to spare.

    I've had several 3+ hour tests and this is a huge help. The brain burns out after an hour

    Thanks! I'll definitely keep that in mind.

    The only good one is Kies Motorsports, and he's about 6/10. Guy seems nice enough waffleswaffleswaffles.

    It's true, he tells me all the time how he wishes he put another M42 in his car instead of the M20.

    Who would've figured that many of the owners of a new car made by a company which has over time tried to appeal to the lowest common denominator, would be among the lowest common denominator?

    I read about field hospitals that were deployed, but then packed up without seeing any patients.

    Those resources COULD HAVE gotten us to community immunity more quickly. At first it sounds nice that fewer people got sick, but that just means that this whole cluster fuck goes on longer.

    Doesn't change the fact I JUST reprimanded her and her roomie for thier actions. They came down to visit for Memorial Day, and almost bragging about the low rates and non-adherence to caution.
