First time testing missed Staff by like 17. I started studying late with like 2 months to go (I was in school as well). I had issues with concentration after like a hour of hitting the books hard I was zoned out day dreaming of...whatever young straight males dream about. I took like a a day of leave. No tv but was on my desktop and the allure of Facebook was there I'd take breaks to check shit out, get into convo's and an hr would fly past. Not good. Quality hrs def that one hr and maybe a lil change after that but I was never a strong study/student/test taker my GPA has always been well...yeah.
2nd time testing I started studying 5 months out and was NOT taking classes...I figured "Fuck that I learned my lesson". I took like 3 days of leave before but had a young kid at home which made things tougher. Wife was still recovering from delivering her. Other then that energy shots and really focusing helped me...I made it by like 3 points next time (Though I scored lower then the first time, fuq?).
