My test center is small (10-15 people) and a lot of them were talking about having watched 7sage videos, having done the entire powerscore logic games bible front to back, and were talking about the different game types. One of those guys at the break told me he didn't get to the last game, which is typical for him, and that if he had unlimited time he might, maybe, do better. After the test he said that he didn't know that there were 5 sections of the test and that maybe that was why he had a 150 on the practice tests because he thought there was only 4 sections.
I think in general it made me feel like shit, because there weren't any people who obviously slacked and yet everyone was talking about 160 as being the promised land and what you needed for Georgia State vs Mercer. There were at least a couple who were talking about mid 160s though so that was good. The test seemed pretty easy so hopefully some of them were surprised with scores in the 160s and they get scholarships to the schools they're looking at. I know that it probably still isn't a great idea, but at least they'd have lower debt at graduation.

Most of my test center wanted to go to a local TTT, and talked a lot about how a 150 or higher is the holy grail type thing. They also didn't realize this TTT was unknown outside of the area, and they eventually freaked out when someone other than me said February was undisclosed.
We were originally all put in this classroom, and one of the girls complains to the proctor about how small the desks are. She makes a circus, and 20 minutes later, we all got moved to a room with tables. Didn't even get started til 9. And then these girls were fighting about who would get to sit alone at one of these tables, since there were 2 people per table except for one or two in the front...
gatorgirl94 wrote:The proctor then told the girl who made a huge stink about the tables how she'll be a great lawyer and the proctor then said she can't wait to visit all of us in our law offices.
...a friend of mine then mumbled to me that there's no way that girl would be going to law school. Her entire life goal hinged on a 150 and the TTT.

Someone asked if they could take a sip of water before the start of the test, and he says, "Yeah, I guess..." she starts to get her water bottle out, "I mean, I probably shouldn't" She stops, and then he looks at the other proctor helpers and says, "Ok, well as long as we monitor them sip their water it should be ok" and then let everyone who wanted a sip get one. CHILLthfo is all I could think
hand sanitizer is utterly pointless
MadwomanintheAttic wrote:Same here with the anal proctor. She kept checking and re-checking our ID as if we could some how magically transform or switch places with someone. She looked inside our bags...everyone had a see through plastic bag. She took a way a girls glue stick that she used to paste her pic and a kids can of mandarin oranges, because apparently cans and glue are prohibited.

Schmell!! Mainly because it kills only the "weak" bacteria, and then the strong bacteria basically have a big frat party/orgy and that results in "Super Bug" progeny, bc only the "fittest" were able to reproduce...etc. etc. that's the gist of it though...warm-hot water and soap is your best friend for fighting germs
This is what I thought. I'll stick with sanitizer. I like to feel like I'm taking part in bacterial eugenics.
