I tried to register for the test, and I got this message:
OOPS!
There are no tests available at this time.

One or more of the following may apply:
• You’ve already registered for all available online tests.
• You do not qualify for any available online tests.
• An online test is currently in progress and registration is closed for the duration of the test.

Please check back later, or if you’d like to see or edit your test information, go to your MyJeopardy! profile dashboard.
Is it too early to log in to take the test? It's 45 minutes away. Is there something else that might be the problem? Should I try logging out and logging in, or creating a new account?

Edit: I created a new account, and am getting the same message.

My husband said he got the same message the other night with less than five minutes until start time. I think he logged in and out, and it eventually welcomed him properly. Hope it works out for you!

You can log in up to an hour before. I suspect that once log-in starts, registration ends.

It's what I get for waiting for the last one, but I couldn't do the previous two. :(

I guess I'll try doing this until right before the test. Maybe I'll get lucky.

Just as easy as the other two, thankfully.

Initial instinct is that it was easier than past tests but i'll have to wait for the answers to know

Not as much when it's actually on the line. I think I missed five (i.e. gave a blank answer) this time. In the previous two, just for fun, I skipped only one in the two days combined.

I had similar technical difficulties trying to log in in Chrome. Barely made it in time using Firefox since I had to figure out my password...

40.

Not quite as easy as the first one, but still pretty easy.

I blanked on the stupid soccer star, couldn't think of the name until about three questions later.

11:22pm here, work tomorrow, and can't go to sleep until answers are posted! :)

Seemed harder than the first test, equal or slightly easier to second test. Took tonight for real, and I think I got around 40 right.

I actually read that exact magazine two hours ago, as I was putting my 4-year-old to bed. Saw the magazine sitting on top of the library's free basket near the door, thought "Hey, I like her", and grabbed it on my way out.

Turns out to have been a good decision.

The painter's Wikipedia entry:

Throughout the 1940s, Kahlo participated in exhibitions in Mexico and the United States, and also worked as an art teacher. She taught at the Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado "La Esmeralda" and was a founding member of the Seminario de Cultura Mexicana.
I don't remember the exact clue, but that sentence sounds like it.

Heh. I did the same thing and answered O'Keefe. I would have sworn it was there.

Took the first two off the videos, scoring 46 and 41 respectively. Tonight for real, a hot mess 39.

I'm with you on this one.

Looks like I managed to sneak in with a 39. Thought this one was a bit tougher, although I got 40 and 39 from the video the last two nights. At least I'm consistent...
