    Thanks! Doors are locked until 7:45 and then the exam doesn't start until 8:30.

    So far I'm the only one taking the Math exam. LOTS of English and Social Studies...

    And I'm home. My brain is fried. 90 multiple choice questions + 1 free response optimization problem in 2.5 hours.

    I think I did really well, though.

    I wish I had read this. When the proctor came around to me for me to sign in, she said "Need to use the restroom before you sign in?" I said no. The second she moved to the next person, I thought "****... I really need to go." :lol:

    Score report is released online at 10 PM on August 13 :dizzy:.

    One of the problems is seriously bugging me. Mind if I PM you and get your input?

    Go right ahead.
    I'll be on and off the computer as I tidy the house.

    Mike, if it was a multiple choice question, it's not impossible that the question is a bit buggy: I believe that CST, like most other teacher tests, field-tests some questions by including them as "non-scoring" questions.
