It's funny you mention that. If you have ever taken the "real" test in person (using the black caps with the colored dots in the center), it's quite a bit harder because you cannot place the colors as close together to make side-by-side comparisons easily. When I had taken the FM100 test in the past at the labs I've worked at, they also time you while you do it, which is added pressure. I also feel that the swatches on the real version of the test have less contrast between them making it that much harder to distinguish the colors.

It is an interesting test none the less.

Got a 0. It looked pretty obvious to me when swatches were out of sequence. After you arrange them, it helps to go through the row doing pair-by-pair swaps, It is rather apparent when a swap looks wrong...
