It took me 10hrs to make up the study guide. I was most worried about the essay. I memorized 6 literary devices and worked them into the piece. I think I totally passed. I'll find out in 2 weeks. I studied 3 hrs evey night before the test. My studied guide saved me for sure but now REA has one that was just published. I dont know if it is any good or not but I have a copy of the study guide I made if anyone is interested. It is 50 pgs long!!!
