Does the studying ever end?

My last class was December 1st and I have been a graduate since December 18th, which means it took me exactly one month to break out my books, start up Microsoft word and start typing a study guide. Why am I diving back into my books and typing up a study guide just a month after I finished grad school? Well, let me tell you…

I have to sit for the BCBA exam. Its a 4 hour, 300 question test that I need to pass in order to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. The test is only offered twice a year and I was hoping to be able to take it before Aedan comes, but it won’t be offered until April. I’m not sure I will be up for taking the test in April, but if I wait I can’t take the test until September.

I’m not going to worry about when I am going to take the exam, the important thing for me to focus on is that I am going to take it, and soon.

Lucky for me there is a group of girls, that I graduated with, who are also preparing for the exam. We have divided up the task list and scheduled a group study session every other Sunday from now until April. Having the task list divided up means that each of us is only responsible for about 25 tasks vs. over 100 tasks. Our plan is to work our way through the list and by the end everyone will have a study guide that covers the entire list.

Now I just need to make sure I get all my tasks completed before Aedan comes. :)  Then, maybe then, I can put my books away and say that my studying days are over…

It seems like everyone I know who graduates and "thinks" they are done with school come to learn that really they aren't. Which totally stinks, but you really are almost there! Good luck studying!
