    Hi there! For all those who have taken the CBT or know about it I have a few questions...

    1. How many passages are there all together?

    2. Is there still a killer 10 question passage along with some 5 question passages?

    3. Does the timer count down or up?

    4. Is there really a search function?

    Thank you advance! I greatly appreciate any help! :)

    2. no 10-question passages, most range from 5 to 7 questions
    3. timer counts down (i think)
    4. there was no search function on January 27/2007


    Also, you have less time per passage now than before with the paper.

    Sorry to add extra questions to your thread, but are the passage lines numbered?

    Man, it is harder to read from the computer than to do it from a paper

    I can't remember...but I don't think so. You may want to confirm that.
