Standard.

Ahh, nothing like waking up at6:00 to take a 5 hour exam. Actually, this is one of my favorite things about life.

NOT.

I actually have some important test-taking advise for anyone planning on taking the SAT’s or ACT’s. Get a prep book, (I like Princeton Review) and get it used or “like new” from Amazon. Standardized tests are just that: standard. they can’t change from year to year, so there’s no point in spending $30 on a bright shiny book for 2010, when the content of the 2003 book is the SAME for just $5.

The Princeton Review has some very helpful strategies. I took an SAT prep class that boasted “exclusive, undiscovered methods” and the Princeton Review encompassed all those and more. Nothing really helps you more than familiarizing yourself with the exam. If you know the format, the time limits and the amount of questions then you have nothing to worry about. My scores were quite decent the first time with *just* this knowledge.

The societyl values are consistently reflected by…

Pre-test breakfast of champions: cereal mess with chocolate covered espresso beans. This has layers of bran flakes, protein powder cocoa powder, banana and hemp milk. plus some candy 😉

During the test I had a z-bar then a clif bar before the gym. It was a new holiday flavor; quite disappointing!
