If your exam is more than 20 days away then quit now.

Or just go ahead and have the usual one cup of coffee. Im sure by the time you get to the center n get set up n everything, you'll prolly hit up the washroom before you start .. .well if ur a nervous wreck like me LOL

I had coffee throughout the exam and I was fine. I think people should work on finishing blocks faster to have more break time. That really helped me and before the last block I took 20 minutes. Bathroom breaks help clear your mind. Take a towel and et your face.
