Bringing warm up questions

Postby Unshake » Fri Dec 10, 2010 3:18 pm

Planning on getting there 45 minutes or so before 8:30AM to do some warm up questions and I was wondering if you are allowed to bring them into the test building but not into your test room (just toss them before going in)?


Also:

For those testing in Minnesota, leave very early...4-6 inches of snow tonight.

yes, that is completely fine. that is what i did when i took the oct test. not only did it make me feel better to do a warm up, it was also much better than just twiddling my thumbs waiting to go into the test room, which would have made me even more nervous-- but i'd do just 1/2 hour instead of 45

This.

I got there extra early ~45min (less drive time than it took when I test drove it) and did my warm ups while having a snack. Getting there too early adds to the stress. A lot of people were there super early, walking around, talking nervously, and you can just sense the anxiety/stress in the area. Try to avoid that if you can and good luck!

Edit: If you do want to get there that early, I'd suggest bringing the newspaper or a magazine or something in addition to a few warm ups. I ended up reading the campus paper that was sitting nearby after I finished my warm up and it helped distract me from all the nervous people :)

do your warmups away from the testing room. Make sure to throw away EVERYTHING that has prep material on it before walking in. I did mine in my car, and left everything there, also left the phone in the glovebox.

make sure to leave your phone outside the testing room too!
