I've been studying non-stop since the July :cry: but I'll take a day off tomorrow.

You really don't need to study unless they changed the format.

It's daunting but don't quit now. This last week could make or break you.

I took the mock exam two days ago, and as far as I can tell, it's still open book. It does say that all your activity on the computer will be recorded though, so they can see you Cntrl+F'ing all the answers... Is that bad?

So, seriously, no need to study at all? As in, I haven't read a single page of the PDFs on the NYLE website, or done any other NYLE studying, and I can just CTRL+F test day and still be fine?

Yes, assuming they didn't change anything.

Is there a substantial mock exam somewhere?

Is this the outline we are supposed to study from? My plan to study is to just read through this once, and then maybe skim read it a second time.

When you downloaded ExamSoft, you should have had a mock exam to complete? It was about 6 questions.

Based on my experience with the test, even reading through it once is too much studying.

I searched the PDF for every answer and had TONS of time. Literally finished in an hour and 15 minutes. They don't give you your score but I felt like I had every question correct.

Reading through this is giving me PTSD from studying fro the bar
