Those old exams (and yes, June '95 is old) are actually a lot different from the most recent ones in terms of emphasis.

You're obviously still in improvement/learning mode, but I don't think you've solidified things just yet. That's not the state you want to be in when you record your final score. I think you should take this test in June without putting too much pressure on yourself...plan now to take it again in October and use June as a means to learn more about the actual experience and more about your weaknesses. Just relax. You don't have to worry about canceling the score...almost all schools now seem to look exclusively at the highest score. There is no rush.

That's the plan! Thanks for the advice.

Over this weekend, I will take the Oct. and Dec. 2003 tests. We'll see if I can repeat the feat (or at least get close) with some newer tests.

Keep practicing. Your actual score could be lower, the same, or higher.

Good call  ;D

Although, I am pretty sure this is a tautology...

Well, not necessarily, you could for example eat your exam.

...thereby resulting in a 120; a lower score than 167. (That and possibly a bad case of stomach cramps)


See? I am not totally illogical! Why can't I apply this to games?!?! Yeargh!

They give you a score even if you eat the exam? That's just so rude.

Dammit. 160 on practice test 41 tonight. 3 steps forward, 2 steps back. This sucks. :(

Edit: Wait... I just rechecked: I misbubbled an entire RC page! That's 5 questions that I got right that I lost! I actually got a 163. /Phew!
