A state school kid started trying to enlighten me before the test, even though my expression basically said "if you don't possess coffee that you are going to offer me, then leave me the hell alone." He had what in his mind were wise points: you should always answer E (because his college professor made that the correct answer the most often), I should only focus on the first three games and the first three passages (because it's impossible to finish them all), and that if I had any last minute questions I should ask him now (because he took a Princeton review course, is retaking a 151 and is sure it was a fluke --- this time he's sure to break 160).
I shit you not. This actually happened to me. I didn't have the heart to destroy this kid by telling him that I was retaking a 172 because I knew I could beat it easily and that his suggestions were awful advice.
I rarely root for people to fail, but I think this guy warrants an exception.
