- I didn't put in enough study time
- I don't really know how to study
- I was super stressed with a weird work travel schedule
- I didn't realize that I would have to be under such strict conditions, such as NO WATER, no watch, no scarf, have to have my finger prints taken, a retina scan (YES A RETINA SCAN!!!) followed by a pat-down before I could write. If for some reason I left the room (like to pee or DRINK WATER), I would have to go through the finger printing, retina scanning, pat-down again. This stressed me out big time
Tomorrow, Friday, August 3rd until Monday, August 13 - my life is study, sleep, eat, run, rinse and repeat. The exam cost is an additional $500 USD, the textbooks are an additional $500 USD, so this test (now valued at $1500 - plus an additional $150 that I used to postpone my first attempt twice) is pretty freaking important to me.
