I just have a few questions that I want to clear up for the exam, so here it goes:

Someone said on their breakdown that if you have the calculator or periodic table out and mark an answer, it will not be saved and that you should remove it before selecting the answer, is that true?

I went to the test drive and although they told me the highlighting and crossing out functions are available, it wasn't a part of the tutorial, so can someone explain how I can cross out/highlight and undo that?

Buret vs pipette (lol): I keep seeing different answers, I know pipette is for transfer and buret is for titration. But to measure a volume either was the right choice. Is buret for +10 mL while the pipette is for 10 mL and less?

I was very nervous even during the test drive. Making a careless mistake because I was nervous is the last reason that I want for getting a question wrong. How did you calm yourself down the day before/the day of the test?

All good questions, especially the buret/pipet! I've stumbled across conflicting answers as well. I believe you have to right-click for the crossing out function. Not sure about the highlighting feature. I get test anxiety too, so I'm going to try and watch some motivational videos before I leave to hype myself up :)

Right click to cross and uncross, if you left click and drag across text the highlight button pops up. Take the 15 minute tutorial - everything is explained and it'll calm your nerves. In my experience all my marks and stuff stayed, but I can't recall if it was in that specific instance. Relax you got this homie!! Eat some HEALTHY foods, work out to get rid of those pre exam jitters, and stay off SDN :)

Did you survive?

Yup. Also at the end of the test you have the option to only review the marked questions instead having to scroll through every single question.
is there a way to do it by clicking some button on the keyboard? or would we have to click "mark" and then click "next" to go to the next question?
