I used the Captain Kirk Star Trek 2009 method. You know, getting to the goal of a test in a way completely unintended and against the spirit of the test's design.
normally, my average is terrible
That's a great method. There was this game called Ultimate Ping where you have to keep the bouncing ball on the playing field by moving sliders on the left and right to block it. Each time it hit one of the sliders, it gave 5 points. Each time it hit the left one, it would go faster.
I found that if you let it hit the way edge of one of the sliders, it hits it several times (usually giving 40 points each time). Also, if you get it to hit in a certain pattern (very random and hard to do), it will keep bouncing back to the left one without hitting the right one and you can just leave the slider alone at that point and it will always block it. Each hit makes it go faster, so pretty soon it is bouncing back and forth at least 10 times a second, racking up 5 points each. I easily got points into the 6 digits when most people's were in the mid 3 digits tops.
