also, if you're only allowed 2 test per year, maybe you should space them out over more than 4 months. Have your basics really solid, I had the choice of testing poorly for 5th kyu or waiting another few months, I chose to wait and I was extremely happy with that decision because I had lots of re-inforced confidence behind my technique. When you're watching people test, you really CAN see a difference between someone who's trying to make it to the test as fast as possible, and someone who has taken the time to really understand his technique and practice.
