Is the following a good example of a QSO for the 5 WPM morse code exam or are abbreviations and other cyptic cw terms used? (like THX for thanks, ANT for antenna, or HW for how). If they stretch it out like the following qso, the exam can be pretty easy to fumble through, filling in the letters that you miss for 1 minute solid copy. I would appreciate any comments.
 
VVV VVV KZ7SK/8 DE KD2QXU = R AND THANKS JOAN. ANTENNA IS BEAM 37 FEET UP. RIG IS HEATHKIT SB1400 AND RUNS 230 WATTS. I LIVE IN ROCHESTER, NEW YORK. NAME IS CURT. RST IS 569. HOW COPY? KZ7SK/8 DE KD2QXU + *

It's been a while since I took mine, but that looks pretty typical.  Be ready for the abbreviations, though, just in case.  But other than that, you're right on.  Just depends on who gives the test, where the content originated from (i.e. computer generated, prerecorded on tape, etc.).
