Computer-Based Tests...More Than Just Studying

After roughly 3 months of studying for the GMAT, today is go day here in Yaounde, Cameroon! A Computer Adaptive Test, the questions become harder as you get more questions correct.

Nearing the end of the Math section, I come across a question along the lines of:

34) If a two-year loan is taken at x% interest and another loan is at a% interest one year and b% interest the second year, what is the increased difference of the loan?

A) .1 + x[(square root)x/a+b(ax)]
B) etc.
C) etc.
D) etc.
E) etc.

Needless to say, I'm on my way to a legit score. Unfortunately, THE ELECTRICITY GOES OUT! The proctor states that we can continue where I left off once the electricity comes back.

After 3 1/2 hours, the electricity never comes back on. I am rescheduled for next week.

As the title of my blog, c'est la vie.
