So this is kind of vague since I don’t talk much about work, but I had to take an exam (on Halloween!) to renew my certification.
I was SUPER nervous about it and have been studying nearly every day. I really needed to get it on the first try since it expired at the end of November.
I was shaking the day I went in. I was an hour early because I was so worried something would happen and I’d be late, but the proctor let me start early since I was WAY early.
It was on the computer this time instead of on paper which was new.
You had the option to flag questions for review and go over them at the end which I totally took advantage of.
The questions… well, I signed a statement that I wouldn’t share, so I won’t. I’ll just say they were NOT at all what I expected based on previous exams.
But the nice part was that I got the results right away!
So, go me! I’m so relieved!
Does your job require any special certifications? How do you deal with the nerves going into it? Do you have any special study techniques? Inquiring minds want to know!
