keep checking. Right now is the peak time for CS test taking because of the upcoming match. There are opening sometimes but you have to catch them really fast cuz there are a lot of people looking for dates.

People are always changing dates, even at this time. The only problem at this point is that there are a LOT more people looking for available dates, so when one does open up it gets taken up right away. You just have to get lucky. There is an automatic update on the CS website that you can sign up for. It e-mails you as soon as someone drops a date but even then by the time you go in to sign up the date is usually taken.

My only suggestion is keep checking every hour or so. You just have to get lucky in the sense that someone drops it right before you check and then you can grab it.

Its just the most busiest time of the year for CS. Like I said before, they are usually all booked up until January because of the match.

Good luck.

Well start checking from now because December is usually the hardest time to get a date as its the very last month that you can usually take the CS if you want to match in that year.

I don't have the link, but you can check under the settings on the CS website. I know it's on there somewhere because my friends have subscribed to it.
