I can give you some pointers for taking the test. Make your appt. as early in the morning as you can. About a week before, cut down on all sugary things you usually eat like juices, desserts & carbs like any white bread, pasta, pizza etc. Don't eat after 9pm the evening before the test. The drink is given very cold so it is not that bad, just like a super sugary kool aid. If you don't pass the one hour test, they send you for a 3 hour test which really sucks. So prepare in advance for the first test & you shouldn't have a problem. GL!
