Getting Cold Feet

Well, I was all set to get the testing over with today - until I got the call this morning that the test I need is not offered on Fridays. So I made the mistake of doing some more research online - come to find out is it a test similar to the SATs where test prep is required-- if you want to pass it. I called B&Noble and the $45 study guide book is not in stock, which means I'm SOL when it comes to preparing.

Here are a few sample questions I found online:

1. Two cyclists start biking from a trail's start 3 hours apart. The second cyclist travels at 10 miles per hour and starts 3 hours after the first cyclist who is traveling at 6 miles per hour. How much time will pass before the second cyclist catches up with the first from the time the second cyclist started biking?

A. 2 hours
B. 4 ½ hours
C. 5 ¾ hours
D. 6 hours
E. 7 ½ hours

2. Jim can fill a pool carrying buckets of water in 30 minutes. Sue can do the same job in 45 minutes. Tony can do the same job in 1 ½ hours. How quickly can all three fill the pool together?

D. 23 minutes
E. 28 minutes

3. Mary is reviewing her algebra quiz. She has determined that one of her solutions is incorrect. Which one is it?

A. 2x + 5 (x-1) = 9, x = 2
B. p - 3(p-5) = 10, p = 2.5
C. 4 y + 3 y = 28, y = 4
D. 5 w + 6 w - 3w = 64, w = 8
E. t - 2t - 3t = 32, t = 8

4. When the chromosomes line up in mitosis this is known as which phase?

A. Telophase
B. Anaphase
C. Metaphase

5. Which cellular organelle contains enzymes that are considered digestive?

7. Which of the following is considered a model for enzyme action?

8. Which of the following statements about enzymes is not true?

I may as well take my $30 test fee and FLUSH IT DOWN THE F*ING TOILET!!

Why couldn't the question be something like what were the names of the strippers Charlie Sheen was partying with in Vegas or which Broadway star is alleged to be a cross dresser???

I AM DOOOOOOOMED.

Have a fabulous weekend :-) Be glad you do not have test on Monday. Hey, I may not have one either after I back out!!!!
