    Default Tests

    I have taken only 1.

    Long Beach in 1975. There were 6,000 taking the exam @ The Arena. The floor was covered with tables and chairs. Before the start of the exam I stood up and was looking at my compitition.....Remember that there is always room for you when you take an exam and DON"T let the odds worry you. If I can make it so can you.
