Introduction: Silent a Watch (Good for Sat)+reversible

Picture of Silent a Watch (Good for Sat)+reversible

This year i took the sat test.. and i was horrified when i read that "any watch that even beeped will get your score canceled" ..ok not the exact words but thats what it mean
so i had my trusty Casio F-200 watch with me which beeped everytime i pushed a button..
i searched online and "special exam silent watch" "made specially for official test" cost a painful 40 USD... my watch cost me 25RMY= 8USD

so i open up my watch and see what i can do
items needed
1) Casio F-200 watch (i dont know about other watches)
2) small "cross" bit screwdriver
3) duct tape
4) 2-10 minutes

attempt at your own risk

Step 1: Remove Back Plate

Step 2:

ok look at your watch and find the small spring
(see picture for an idea)

now, look at your back plate
that is the buzzer (see picture)
and the small exposed part there is where the spring contacts it to make it beep

Step 3: Final Step...

Er... wouldn't it have been easier just to leave your watch off for the tests?
