Studying Studying

Ugh, I have been studying for the last few weeks. Well, what I should say is I have been trying to study for the last few weeks. I will be sitting for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst exam on September 16th. In 21 days I will be waking up at the crack of down to be at the testing center by 7:30am. I will check in, and then sit down in front of a computer and proceed to answer 150 questions in my 3 hours and 55 minute test window (seriously, the info email says I will have 3 hours and 55 minutes…you would think they could just give us 4 hours). After I have answered my 150 questions, I will submit my answers and then…and then I will be waiting. Even though the test is all multiple choice and on the computer, I will have to wait until the test taking window is closes (the end of September) and then I will have to wait for them to go through each test. I won’t know if I passed or failed until December. Ugh.

So I have been trying to get serious about studying. Let me tell you how it’s going. On Monday I did laundry, went to the grocery store, cleaned the house, made baby food, made a double batch of cookie dough to freeze (best idea ever!), and tried out a new recipe for dinner. Productive day, right? Oh sure, very productive, except the one thing I planned to get done (you know that studying), oh that…opps. Sigh.

Since then I have gotten some studying done this week (and quite a bit done over the last two weeks). I’m hoping to get some more studying done tomorrow before I meet with my study group on Saturday.

Part of me just wants the test date to get here soon so I can get it over with, but the other part of me is not ready to take the test at all!

Basically I just cannot wait until September 17th! I will then be officially DONE (well hopefully anyway, I guess if I fail I will be taking the test again in March, but I’m not going to think about that).

I can't believe you won't find out until December! That would drive me nuts!!

I'm sure you'll do great though :)

Good luck!!! I know it's not easy, but you're so close to the finish! Praying God's blessings on you as you continue to study!
