So, it's time to reveal my weird pencil habits. I consider this a confessional. Yes, I am ashamed.I settled on the Mirado Black Warrior from Paper Mate in August of 2006. They come in packages of 12. Reviewed here:http://www.pencilrevolution.com/2006/05/review-of-papermate-mirado-black-warrior/Run, don't walk, to Office Depot and get on board.I have never reused a package; each time I take a test (the real thing or a PT), I use a new set of 12 pencils. For the real thing, I brought 24, 2 packs. When I am finished, I seal the pencils in a ziplock bag, and mark my score on the outside of the bag.For Saturday, I've prepared another 24 pencils, but there were 3 pencils in one pack that had a strange coat of paint, so I threw them out. I went back through my bag, and found my highest practice test, a beautiful 177, and coincidently, there were 3 fresh, unsharpened pencils left in that bag. They have been placed into my case for Saturday and mixed in with the remaining 21 pencils for good luck.
