I'm taking the Feb test, the closer the date is the less focused I am when taking practice tests. Anyone out there feeling the same way? I try so hard to sit down and focus but for some reason I can't take a full test without getting bored or feeling out of focus. Any tips?

    Where do you go to take practice tests? Do you bring along computer, phone etc..?

    Those locations are fine, and a combination might best prepare you for any level of noise on test day. But just make sure both are away from friends etc.. that might disrupt you. For now, I'd stick with the library until you get better with focus issues.

    Can't you print out the answer sheet and use that after the test to get your score?

    Pretend as though the test you are taking is the one that counts. After all, the score you get on practice tests is generally an approximate reflection of your ultimate score.

    Sounds like a little burnout going on... I would take a few days off, if not a week... You don't want to keep pushing too hard and then you feel this way on game day.

    Your physical conditions matter a great deal too. Make sure you get enough sleep, eat well, and exercise. I've never tried it personally, but some people on this forum are recommending regular meditation too.
