    i know doing bad @ those tests sucks, but don't get discouraged!! I dont know if you get the printout after u take the test, but if you do, just go over the thing you missed and tighten up. I know the wording is weird, and to be honest with you, when I was taking the exit exam I was sitting there just like WHAT?!?!? but, Glory be to God, I passed.

A friend of mine was telling me that a lot of stuff that was on the test was in the Saunders Comprehensive Book, so I think thats a good book to buy (I know its rough having to buy book after book, but think of it as an investment in you!) U can do it!!!!
