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.
