You can do this! The one downside to the practice exams is that you don't take them under the same conditions as the real deal. If you're finding a lot of silly mistakes, chances are that something was distracting you... and you shouldn't have to deal with anything like that in the testing center.

Don't slow down now! You're almost there!

You are going to do great. I can't wait till tomorrow night to hear how well you did. Plus you can give me the low down on the test.

*hugs* You can do it!!! I made a lot of silly mistakes on the NC6 practice tests, too ... usually towards the end, when my internet connection decides to be sketchy (it's satellite internet, so not super-fast) and time gets crunchy. :) I'm sure you'll do just fine!!

well i am doing it according to the complexity of the test or at least what i gather from y'all on here. because i am still taking a full load at college and working these test in between. i am saving 3 and 5 until i get between semesters to have more time with them. so ya i am out of order, but even if the circumstances did not have me change the order; i probably would anyway just to keep myself entertained...

you'll be fine.

why 6, though? you're not going in order?

I know that a couple of times I bolted ASAP, in fear that someone would call out, "Wait! Come back! There was a mistake!"

Good job on your exam!

As I prepare to take NC 5 for the THIRD time (the only test i have left) I commend you for your B. It is really hard to tell sometimes with EC exams because the grading formula is a "secret". Kudos chica. You inspire me.
