Remember The Name - Fort Minor
This song is on point for tomorrow:

This is ten percent luck
Twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure
Fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name

How...how is this even possible?


Agreed I am weird and like my pencils to be VERY sharp so I probably use 1 or 2 pencils a section lol


Exactly, I'm one pencil per LR/RC. Two per LG and writing sample. Maybe we need to invest in higher quality pencils?


I stay faithful to my black Dixon Tri-Conderoga pencils. They are pretty good.


I use a pencil per LR/RC section and two per LG. I've got like 9 pencils all sharp and ready to go... and a manual pencil sharpener. I'm off to the store to get my snacks for my bag and then I'm all set for tomorrow.


lollolol I show up with a full brand new pack of fully sharpened black ticons because if it gets dull or my hand gets sweaty i like to switch up the pencil. On average Ill switch pencils after each game or passage and go through 2-3 in each LR section. Gotta be sharp!

its funny because at both my takes i got comments from people and the proctors about coming prepared with a ton of pencils haha


My new 24 pack was delivered this morning. Spares for if there's anyone in my testing room.

I've been a little under the weather but have been getting over this cold. Still, should I take like a mucinex or something to avoid headaches, etc. for test day? Thoughts

I dunno, between LG and the fun of the writing not being scored, that seems like 5%...

Lots of Vitamin C and ignore any diet you're on and eat a good bit so your body has the energy to continue fighting it off. I proactively take Advil before and during my tests so that can't hurt. Dunno about Mucinex, does it have side effects that could impact your performance?

For Karma, take tissues and cough drops for yourself.

Yeah I have drank Emergen C everyday for sometime now and am probably gonna do ibuprofen just to get fight off any headache. I really am not sure about the mucinex, I would hate to introduce a new variable but a "attack" could be worse. Do you experience any change in mental ability due to the Advil?

Too much ibuprofen can make you sleepy. Only take 1 :)

One word: Benadryl. The active ingredient takes effect faster than Melatonin and doesn't have side effects that creep into the morning like Melatonin. You can buy a pack of the knockoff (same active ingredient) at Walmart or Target for like three bucks.

PT80 Game 3 will never fail to confuse the hell out of me. Probably wasn't a good idea to do it today, but whatever.

What I usually do is to have a drink before bed. Then, I sleep like a baby no matter what. Not sure whether this will work for other people.

I'm pretty sure they will tell you where to go when you check in. First time I took it they escorted a group of us to the room. It's been simple for me every time and I've taken it at diff centers before.

Worst case, it's a big university and you'll likely see a bunch of people walking around carrying gallon sized ziploc bags if you are anywhere near the vicinity. Just follow one of them.
