lesson learned

Post Sat Apr 28, 2007 10:21 am
OK, for those who have read my posts regarding my pre-test anxiety, LESSON LEARNED!, I couldnt go to sleep last night (I probably ended up sleeping at 4am)and my test was at 9am. I woke up drank a cup of coffee, reviewed notes and left home. On my 20th question of the quantitive section, my attention span was shot by the administrative people. They were talking loudly and it made me even more anxious. I ran out of time on the verbal section.I was on my 30th question...needless to say, I didnt accept my score. SOOOO, I had to reschedule it 30 days from now, which is the 29 of May (another $250 geez!) at 2pm. Anyhow, I figured if I was filled with anxiety, I must have not been so confident in my studies. SO, Im going to continue practicing as I have been until my next test day. Im sure Ill do better then.
