Feb test dilemma. I have pneumonia

Postby Nicolena. » Thu Jan 09, 2014 3:06 am

So I've been very sick for weeks and I was told by one dr that it was just a sinus infection. It turns out I have pneumonia. Id been having a ton of trouble focusing this last week and sleeping a lot to try to recover. However, now I'm getting kind of worried about my strategy - a timed test every other day with review on the days in between.

I'm retaking the test for a third time in February. I'm near my target score but I'm having trouble focusing now bc of the sickness and some of the antibiotics I'm on. Do you guys have any advice? Should I just stick to drilling and short 35 min sections for the next week or so? Or should I break up some PTs to work on? I don't think doing a full pt will be accurate at all.

Thanks!

I had pneumonia a few weeks before my test, as well! (June 2011). I don't know about you, but I didn't feel well enough to study. I took a full 2 weeks off to recover, and then I hit the books again, two weeks before the test. You should feel better in a couple of weeks, and will have a better idea then about your ability. I took 1 practice test the week after I recovered and did a lot of timed section practice for a few hours each day. Test week, I only did timed sections and took the day before the test off. I ended up exactly hitting my target score, which was consistent with the timed test I took the week before.

Feel better, and rest up. Good luck!
