omg, it was wonderful. i took the test at the Curtis Center on Walnut and 6th, near Independence Hall. First off, the staff and location are comfortable and professional. No test-taking in a freezer! I thought I would hate the computer-based, responsive test, but I honestly couldn’t even tell.
Now here is the kicker (and of course the real reason for my glee) I totally killed the test! You get your score right away and I couldn’t be happier. Its not a 1600 but its about as close to it as I think I could expect. Better than my diagnostics and better than last night’s nightmares predicted!
Sweet, PhD program in Occupational Therapy here i come! Post Peace Corps, that is.
My test date is 3/19, and I hadn’t studied in weeks. The hubby helped me out by studying with me last night; meaning he sat and watched and talked me through some of the math. We only studied for an hour or so, but it was better than my usual average for the week (0 minutes). I’m actually motivated to work on it again tonight!
I’m plugging through my Princeton Review book. After two weeks of not really looking at it, I did the fractions chapter. Must get into the vocab more! March 19 marches ever closer.
I’ve started on my flash cards… for vocab improvement. watched the princeton review strategy DVD… a couple chapters in my book. i love studying!
Today my goal is to download the prep materials and learn what this test is all about. Its been so long since I took anything besides a personality test (you know, the kind jobs give you to see if you’ll ‘fit in’). Wish me luck.
March 19th, people. Popular is on her way to graduate school!
I am going to freaking register for this test – TODAY. Check later for my post on having done the deed.
i need to a take this before i leave for the peace corps next july. i think the first step is to get a study guide.
