I refer you to to a principle in Engineering that I call "The Unspoken Law".

It states:
"Never say ANYTHING - if it's bad, it happens; if it's good, it goes away".

Be sure to let us all know how it comes out when it's all over.

First, congratulations for taking this step.
I took my Masters for the first time on April 3 of this year. I did pass it. Yes I was nervous. But I will tell you that with the right preperation you will be fine. I studied on my own for a month before going up for it. I had to re-learn formulas, calculations, business law, everything it seemed.
My thought process was to go through the exam and answer what I knew then go back and answer the rest. Suprisingly when I was done with the first part I still had 90 minutes left and I used every one of them to go back to the beginning and double check every answer I submitted. 90% of the questions come right from the material you are allowed to bring in so use it.
Also keep in mind that you have about 3 minutes per question, if you find yourself using more then three minutes move on and go back to it at the end.
I could go on for an hour here but hopefully you have heard all this by now.
One last thing.
Have everything you can take to the exam ready Friday night, set your COMFORTABLE clothes out and just go to bed early Friday.
Best of luck.

Remember to stay calm. What works for me is to go through and answer all the easy questions first, and then go back and get into the more indepth questions that require more time with the code book or have more involved math. If I get totally stuck, I always go with my first instinct, most tests count no answer as wrong so guessing is better than nothing. Don't get too stressed about the clock, it is what it is, and spending time checking the clock is taking time away from test taking. If you are prepared, know where to find things in the code and keep your head on you'll be fine. And if I have time left over at the end of the test, I always check my math. Good Luck!1

Remember the test is a pass/fail test. A 71 is no better than 100. Just prepare, read the questions and look for bad questions, some of the question might have missing data and you need to call that out to the test people. Remember they love to use the odd stuff in the code to trap you, like using rhw wire.
