How did you guys feel days before the 2011 test??


I can honestly say I've put in the time for the 2013 test for 6 straight months. I do well on practice tests but this last week is really tough. I feel like I am forgetting a lot and I am a nervous wreck. I know I've put in the time but I iust don't feel super confident. Is this normal? How did you guys and girls who scored above an 80 on the 11 test feel days before ? Confident ? Unsure? Any advice/feedback is greatly appreciated for these last stressful days.

Share your advice brother. I say 80 and above because that's my AIM. I got a 67 on the last test, not looking to repeat or be close to that again.

I got a 90 and felt like I was a mess before the test . It's impossible trying to remember everything all at once when your studying but the saying " the answers will pop out at you when your reading the question !"  Is true  just relax at this point just review what u struggled and got confused with  remember the work u already put in is what counts don't go too crazy next few days try to relax

You are not alone feeling nervous I also put in the time and am off this week trying to cram as much as I can but very nervous too. Hope all will be well and in 5 weeks or so will be able to post some good news on this forum.

The last week, I was burnt out, I tried to force myself to review but I couldn't bare it. My greatest fear was that I would forget the material, but when I walked in the test I felt good my brain was rested. If you hit it hard the last 6 months the last week really doesn't make a difference.

the night before the exam i had a bit of a panic attack that i wasted 6 months and i knew nothing! the morning of the test i woke up and i did a quick review and got confident out of nowhere! I went in feeling good...then after the test i knew i was golden (literally)! So if you're panicing now...no worries, you know ho much work you put in and it will pay off- the knowlege is in there if you put the time in!

Everyone is right about hard work. It does pay off. I would worry if you didn't feel at least a bit nervous. I felt nervous before my test, and I ended up doing well. Give yourself the credit you deserve for putting in the time studying and sacrificing all the things in your life.

Nervous about the unknown, but confident in that I felt I did all I could really do in preparation.  I felt I outworked most of my peers and because of this I would be ok;  I was in 2nd bmoc class.

I honestly don't remember. That 6 months is a blur in my memory. I barely remember the first year of my daughter's life because of that damn test!

I can say this though. I walked out of there feeling very confident that I hit 85. I ended up with an 84. My seniority points put me in the first class.

When I left there I knew I was in the 75-85 range which I was.

Heading into that week I wasn't nervous at all. I was happy and relieved that the end was in sight. Just keep working hard and as long as you put in the work you'll do very well.

Best of luck bro

Wisecop that's my problem right now. I can't study, I can't sit still. I am mentally exhausted and burnt out. I don't understand how people are still doing 8hrs a day. I feel if you have to do that much at this point, perhaps you didn't work as hard the last 6 months.

Don't worry about everyone else.  Just worry about yourself.  That could be applied to more than one area on this job.  Most likely if you studied hard you will pass.  Bring a watch.

The best advice is to bring a watch, and I really don't think the importance of this can be exaggerated. The jackasses from DCAS will totally screw up the time keeping and just when you think you have 30 mins. left, they tell you to close your books.
