Nah. Totally disagree. If you're unlucky you won't get picked. Sitting in a trial isn't all that interesting. Sitting about doing eff all for a fortnight is unbelievably dull. I did two weeks, got two trials. One was upsetting but interesting, the other was like a comedy sketch - the biggest waste of time and money ever, full of half-arsed smackheads and bickering, all over the most trivial charge. Both of them were better than the days I had to sit around waiting to be called (or not be called...).
Jeans and a smartish t-shirt or a shirt will do you fine. Take a book / PSP / whatever. There were people who just sat about staring into space for days on end while waiting to be called. I managed to get through about three novels over the course of the fortnight.
