Ok.
Yep. The earplugs will be more comfy to wear than the big headphones pro metric gives.

my personal advise about zolipidem...


i used it a while back and it helped to fix my sleep schedule.
at first it was amazing because i was getting 8 hours of sleep every night.
decided to try it the night before an nbme and definitely had a huge mental block. my mind wasn't as clear. i dropped a few points on my nbme score.


just sharing my experience though everyone is different.

goodluck!

I suggest you go in on the 26th and get used to better be ahead than face any issue the crucial 48hours before the exam

Sorry Drmano for late reply i think you will be fine
If you are leaving on the 27th ,1 day is enough for you to
Get an aquaintance with the place
I dont know am i normal or abnormal
I feel absolutely nothing, just 1 day left
Just remember to do free 150 questions before
You leave your house
Good luck
