six pencils, needed them all!! i had two nice mechanicals (.5 and .7) for the LR sections, two normal sharpened pencils (one for LG one for RC), one of those pre-sharpened ones that you use in pre-school for the writing sample, and one of those little pencils without an eraser. . .just in case
i think i'm OCD
why the different types of pencils? do the mechanical pencils help you out more on the LR and the regular ones do well for you on the LG? I don't get it.
Also, who actually uses highlighters? The girl two spaces over kept highlighting during her RC section and it started to really bug me SQUEEEEEAK.
LMAO! I think you wer sitting next to me! hahaha!
I used highlighters, but I didn't have the squeeking kind, I used Sharpie!
And I felt as though the highlighting helped me tremendously. When I was practicing I NEVER highlighted, but on Saturday I made it a point to highlight, and every highlight was a different color. LOL! But it really did help me.
And I only used one pencil. I took 5 with me though, I had the mechanical kind.
