[USA] Best chances to become a foriegn service worker? I want to apply, I've alreadly gotten the study guide, but beyond studying and being open minded of the people I'd be dealing with, I don't really know how to prepare.

I'm 21 and don't have much experience in anything foreign service related, a class I took last semester turned me onto it though. I'm pretty much flying solo on this and know the chances of getting it are pretty slim. I do know that the next test date is somewhere in the next 2 months. I was wondering if there was anyone out there who could give me some advice as to how to prepare for the field, [besides reading, although a few recommendations aren't minded short of a newspaper, the economist or a textbook] and anything that will polish me up nice for the test. Also, would you recommend it? The highs, the lows, boring job, excessive work, everything is great, even down to the pay and experience required.

There have been a bunch of questions here about this, with some really good advice. A search for "foreign service exam" should do the trick.
