T.S. I really need to add more books to this list. I have an excel file of about 400 books that I compiled from a variety of online sources. But, I think this is a good start. I'll get around to it one day, if anyone wants me to continue adding books to it.

Kelly Sauskojus Please do! I'm a junior starting to think about taking this test, and I would really appreciate it!

Sure thing. Glad it could be of service to someone. I'll do that in the coming weeks. I was having some trouble the when I first made the list (it would only let me add 100 books), so if that problem continues, I'll post it in 4 parts.
