    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.
    I took (and passed!) the PE exam in October '17... Literally the same month I got back from Afghanistan. It's an 8 hour test. Ditto all the above. Get to bed early the night before. If you haven't paced your studying well enough to know your material by the week before, last minute cramming won't make it work.

    They should be improper fractions since the cars are so big and heavy. Even the model nomenclature has kept up to suit the bloat; a 4 cylinder 3 series (US models) used to be a 318/320, then they bumped it up to a 328, now it's a 330. So a base model 3 series is now a 330, and the base price is equivalent to an older base model when adjusted for inflation, that means there's an inflation rate for BMW model numbers

    Yeah, but then you have to say "point five," which does not demean the nomenclature of current models nearly as much as "half."
    Haha, solid point.

    The half series, yep, that's what I'm calling them now, and the other one might end up as three quarter.

    The 1/2 series that arent based on Mini's are the best ones now, but I think that ship has already sailed

    That's what replaced the 1 series 2 Door versions.

    The 2 door versions of the F30 3-series, is the 4-series, hence 428

    Haha, there's a guy with a supercharged SS in that non-metallic blue. He's known locally as "Cookie Monster" so, the name has been taken.

    Since it's essentially a German Camry, I'm thinking Kamry.
