[font="arial"][font="comic sans ms"]hi everyone,
this may sound like an odd question, but i've read that your 6hrs includes the computer tutorial before the exam begins. my question for those of you who have taken it is, did you need that tutorial/explanation or could you breeze through it to save the time for taking the actual exam? obviously i am familliar with how to operate a computer (i found this forum, anyway! lol :behindpc: ) but i imagine it tells you how to answer the alternate form questions (ordering, fill in the blank, etc.)
i've heard some people mention that they brought snacks to help keep from feeling hypoglycemic, what did you bring??
my other question, is that i know there are pre-scheduled breaks in the computer when you've tested for a certain amount of time, but are you able to take breaks before then (i.e: if i begin to feel overly anxious
before the "scheduled" break, can i request a short break? )
my test is next thursday, sept. 7th in orlando, and it will be my first go around!
ooooh, i almost forgot to ask one more question (sorry!) since my test is thursday, those of you who were able to find out through your state's bon, do they post any license numbers on saturdays? i figure friday will be waaayy too soon, but i hate to think i'll have to wait out the weekend
(btw, i'm in fl, which typically releases results quickly)
thanks to you all for your continued input!

actually i'm also familiar on how to use the computer...
but i still use the tutorial session... my purpose is to ease my anxiety when i first sat down in front of a computer... it really helps! it's just a few minutes.. it will help you breathe in and out.. when i'm answering the actual exam, i just felt like im answering review questions at home... mild anxiety helps. i got 75 questions in 1 hour and passed on my first try...
my advice: use the tutorial... it's just a few minutes..:typing
chocolates may help...
you can request for a break.
