I'm a university student and I have a math exam in 10 days. I didn't really study much and only covered about 25% of the required material. In order to pass this exam (based on other people's experiences and my own evaluation) I would need to study about 10 hours per day for the next few days.
But there's a problem - I've never done so much studying in such a short time frame. [more inside]

The bar exam is in 3 weeks. I'm feeling overwhelmed with guilt. Guilt I'm not studying enough. Guilt I'm not researching and writing briefs for work fast enough. And tremendous guilt that I've been a straight-up asshole with my family and friends. I'm not good at this balancing act. [more inside]

I have a exam this Wednesday. I am also going through extreme anxiety. I am diagnosed with anxiety disorder. Last fall I went to the hospital due to extreme anxiety over constant pains which caused me to be suicidal. I ended up seeing a psychologist and social worker regularly.
Do you think it would be acceptable to get a doctors note to postpone this exam until my bout of extreme anxiety passes.

I am hoping there are some metafites out there that have taken this exam and can tell me what to expect. Unlike other wildlife wildlife position exams, there is no option to "preview exam." Roughly how many questions is it? What type of questions and how should I study? I really want to get this job! Any advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated!

I am putting together a playlist for bar exam preparations. I am looking for songs that will help ease the pain of studying and have compiled a few from a range of genres. What else can I add to this to make it the ultimate inspirational list of songs?
Here are some that I have already chosen:
Isley Brothers - Work to Do
Jay Z - 99 Problems
LL Cool J - Mama said knock you out
Beyonce - Run the World (girls)
David Bowie - Under Pressure
ODB - Got your money
Fugees - Killing me softly

I had a routine ladyparts exam a few months ago. It qualified as "preventive care" and I didn't have to pay a copay. (Yay! Thank you, ACA!) I got a rundown of what they charged my insurance a month or two ago -- one of those THIS IS NOT A BILL things -- and promptly lost/forgot about it, since I owed nothing. Today I got a check, made out to me, from the doctor's office for a couple hundred bucks. Do I get to keep it? [more inside]

My father (65yo) has a small business teaching English as a foreign language to adults. He doesn't teach from scratch, but rather teaches those who already have a basic understanding of English. To do this, he asks all who apply to first complete a 2-page basic language assessment. He has recently created a website, and would like to be able to include the assessment online, preferably embedded on the website, or as a link to an assessment site.
What software or site would easily
help him do this? [more inside]

I have a SSA Consultative Exam (mental) for disability determination next week. Since I don't have a doctor of my own, or health insurance, or an income the NJ DOL is providing one for me to see. There is a form for me to fill out that authorizes the release my SSA Consultative Exam Report. I don't have a doctor of my own, nor a way to get a doctor myself. How can I get a copy for myself then?

I've taken the test once, and didn't score so hot the first time and I'd like to take it only one more time. Anybody take it and pass and have some words of advice, such as study methods, programs, or books?
