    Consistently in the low to mid 90's now. Scored a 98 a few days ago. Saturday is the day. I'm walking in, sitting down, and doing it. Thanks everyone for your encouragement. This has been a dream of mine for quite some time, even when code was a requirement.

    I'll likely end up learning code at some point, that's always been a goal of mine too. I enjoy QRP operation, and being able to do QRP code would be the cherry on the cake.

    I must admit, a few of the questions I've memorized inadvertently - only because I've taken many, many practice exams and seen the questions SO many times. However I'm proud to also admit, I've taken the time to study the material and learn as much as I could, and try to develop an understanding of many new aspects. I'm still a little fuzzy with remembering a couple of the formulas, so in the next couple days I'm going to focus on trying to memorize the actual formulas I'll need to use.

    Way to go. When I studied for Extra, I was scoring between 38 to 42 right on the practice tests. I got 45 right on the real one.

    Good job.
