Embarrassed EXAM next week- share your experience

My exam is next week folks and I am panicking. Apart from my PERMIT,PEN, 2 PIECE OF ID and FOOD is there anything I need to take?

If anyone wrote the exam recently ( esp 2013) can you share your experience briefly too?

Do you recommend break after every block?
Can we carry ear plugs?

finally - what do you recommend for the night before? I fear the night more than the exam day since I have a history of toss and turn till morning dawns....

Panic attack - hyperventilation - decreased CO2 - Respiratory alkalosis.

Come on don't hurt yourself. Just stay focus and redo UW, and other questions. Most important, study your weak area. Do the 150 free questions.

The night before... go to applebee's, order yourself a couple of beers and enjoy. More than likely you'll do fine.

During the exam, just don't panic; if you don't know a question, jump it and come back to it at the end
