    Yeah... but the room is dead quiet. During on of my Kaplan practice tests there was this big Asian girl that was in the seat next to me. She kept chomping and slurping... my score actually dropped two points from all of my other practice tests and I am sure she is to blame.

    Oooh, tell me how your CBT goes? I'm planning on taking it next year. I'm taking prep for the August one now, but I just haven't had enough time to put into it...
