Should image many have taken the exam in an afternoon :), best thing is not to get the books out the day before and especially that morning.

Yep, I took mine at 1400 on June 11, 2008. Had to drive 2 hours to get there so I left at like 0930 in the morning so I could get lost (if it came to that) and not panick. I ended up getting to the testing center at noon and sat in the parking lot reading a book until time to go in. I think that reading a fiction book prior to going in was the best thing I did that day, because it allowed me to relax a little and non stress. I had taken some school books to study with but found myself feeling that panicky feeling starting to rise in my chest, so I put it down and picked up the fantasy fiction one.

Anyhoo, I bet the test wasn't any different than the one they gave at 0800:D

Good luck
