No brilliant ideas, just the thought that you seem to be on the right path. Keep up the good work!

How did it go? Was it as hard as you thought it would be?

Oh goodness, I've been meaning to report! ha! I've been totally slammed with work since the test - stuff I had put off to get thru this. Anyway... yeah, it was tough, but - I passed!!! It was a matter of drill drill drill. I had about 20 different pictures in my head - associations - to draw from. In the end the major system of memorizing numbers helped a bit too. It would have helped more had I trusted that it would work earlier... I didn't have quite enough time to make that stick. By Wednesday afternoon (the day before the test) I was scoring 90-95% consistently on the memory portion! (at home) I'm really quite stunned at that. I know I didn't do quite that well during the real thing - I choked on one of the series - one of those horrible ones with odd numbers, no 0's and 5's - but I was able to make educated guesses. I was worried I'd look at the test and my ADD would kick in and no organization would come. But somehow my brain actually worked and I was able to remember just long enough. Yay! I have lots of tips for anyone who needs to do this - or something like it. I won't bore you now, but if the info is needed I'll share. I'm very excited - and frankly very proud of myself for accomplishing this. See? You can teach an old dog new tricks!! Thank you Connie for your support! It was wonderful to have you pulling for me.

WOOOOOHOOOO! That is good news!

I know that this is a busy week, but when you get some time, please give us information on what you learned. That way, when others are in need, your wisdom can help.

You found what worked for you and worked with it until you were successful. Quite an accomplishment, indeed!

Thank you Connie! I'm still elated that I was able to pull this off! I will share my (baha!!) wisdom (cough) soon. I didn't want to impose my thoughts on others unasked. :) I will say this. The mind is a very very interesting thing. I am the music minister/pianist at my church. I had put practicing on hold while I studied,and frankly hyperfocused on this test this past week. When I sat down at the piano on Friday morning to prepare for Sunday service, I felt like a first-year piano student again. I had the hardest time playing! My fingers simply didn't want to obey what my mind told them to do. This lasted for a few hours - as I played for about 5 minutes an hour for a few hours that morning to get &quot;back in the groove.&quot; Honestly, it was as if certain brain cells had been borrowed or disconnected to open new channels or something. Very very odd. And no, I'm not going to donate my brain to science for them to figure out what happened. LOL I'm back to normal now, but that was weird! Now I understand why I can't multitask - at all!
