Yeah, me too.

But I didn't understad how the test worked at first.

Would it be fair to take it again? Since it doesn't give you the answers, maybe it would be fair.

I got an 80.6%, and I attribute the results to my D10.1 modules which were used for the test Those sounds were really cool too! I enjoyed cranking up the volume and listening to the bass harmonics decay. Some were easy to tell apart but after taking that I realized that my musical memory isn't as good as I expected it to be.

I think it would be fair to take it again, just wait a little while before you do. I immediately forgot about the previous sound clip in order to focus on the next one and can't really recall what any of them sounded like since they were more or less just random clips.
