First of all, congrats on your progress thus far. As far as advice on the exam goes, that's pretty straight forward. Get a good night sleep the night before, hydrate well, and don't over think your answers. The written exam is a combination of your basic math, reading comprehension, spelling and grammar, memory, etc. No prior LE knowledge is necessary.


Relax, and follow the proctor's instructions exactly to the letter. Exactly...To...The...Letter...

I'm surprise you don't have a Word document filled with your generic responses to "copy and paste" from.

Like others have said, get plenty of rest the night before and good luck.


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

Good job, priyab89 and I'm guessing you have a better idea now of why you got a generic response here rather than a convenient breakdown of categories and types of questions. 


I expect you have taken a lot of exams in college.  You already know how to prepare.  I am certain the element of surprise figures in.  So must your own consistency/common sense/ etc. as part of the evaluative process.  That's not something anyone here would have essayed on, as you see.


If they did, the test's effectiveness would be diluted, right?


Keep punchin'!
