Thats great, I am myself in a big dilemma, what time would be perfect. I am going to take a date for first week of sept, and will have to take date in march start, considering all slots in bay area get taken up very quickly!

I am in the New York area and here, it is said, that we need to book slots atleast 2 months in advance to be sure of the time/date that we want.
So,it wuld be a good idea for you too, to book early and then prepare yourself for that time.
I know that some people may have found this post of mine very trivial (how does the time matter???!!!) but, this did AFFECT me largely since being a strict non-morning person, I took the test at 8 AM only to realize that I had not yet 'woken' up fully :)

8am is too early for me too! :) I even postponed taking the exam a month later because they only had 8am available for the month I wanted to test. I settled on 10:30am in May.

You have time to train your body and brain to work for you... :) Take practice tests at the same time your actual GMAT is going to be. Eat meals and snacks at the same intervals you would on test day. When I first took the GMAT, I had the same concerns as you! My appointment was at 2pm, right when my body starts to crash after lunch. About two weeks before the test, I started eating small snacks for lunch, instead of my usual meal. It helped me avoid the crash! However, on test day, I got so nervous, I barely got a bite down at breakfast and didn't end up eating any snacks during the test breaks! I wasn't tired though! :)

Good luck with your exam!
