    Well, lets see. We got there at 8:30am. We all had to stand in a line and wait our turn to register for the test, which basically means they checked to make sure everyone had the correct documents (birth certificate, diploma, etc). Some people didnt have the right documents and they got sent home. I felt so bad for those people!
    So after they check your documents, they send you to a classroom and there you will sit and wait until everyone has been registered. Bring some study material for quick review because we sat there in that room til 1030, when we finally began the test.
    The first part was Vocabulary. 80 questions in 24 minutes. Like I said, just stay calm and you should be able to finish all of them. Then she collects your scantrons and hands out the next ones for the reading comprehension. I cant remember how long we had to complete this section, but basically it was one long passage with questions, and then several short passages with questions. I happen to be a fast reader, so I chose to read all the passages before answering the questions. However, I heard some other people were able to answer the questions without fully reading the paragraphs. Everyone is different and you know your pace. Do what works for you. The answers are basically right there in the reading.
    After she collected out scantrons for that part, we got a bathroom break. And after that, we did the math. The math was 40 questions, but again I cant recall how much time we had to finish them. (Sorry, I was really trying to focus that day, LOL). Like many others have already said, the math is somewhat simple. You really have to know the rules for intergers (adding subtracting, multiplying, division...) Also how to add and subrtact fractions and mixed numbers! Just do the problems and dont think too much. Try not to second guess yourself, there isnt enough time for that. As soon as she collected the scantrons for the math we were free to leave. We got out at 1:30. So basically the test is from 10:30 - 1:30, with a bathroom break, plus she took some time to hand back our documents, and also talked alittle bit about VEEB. Ok, I hope all my rambling helped! GOOD LUCK!!!

And Miaizon, you will do fine on the exam stop stressing your brain sounds like it in overload so carefully step away from your books and study guides and RELAX! Sometimes your brain needs a break please give it one and after a while you will see things and answer questions a lot clearer! Goodluck to u!
