For years now I’ve kept this little picture on my desk…75% for a laugh and 25% for days like today.
Not gonna lie, I’m scared. But I’m also excited to give this exam a shot and (even more so) to get it over with. At this point I’ve officially done all I can, beside looking over equations in the parking lot before I walk in to Prometric. The worst that can happen is that I take it again in January, and really, that’s not so bad (it’s always good to have something lined up for the post holidays slump anyway, right?)
I spent the last few nights rereading notes and going over practice problems in the Kaplan Q&A. I didn’t get through the whole book as I had hoped. I did a set of 150 problems on Wednesday night and ended up getting most of them wrong (hello panic attack, followed by anger). So I spent Thursday night going through all of my incorrect answers and correcting my mistakes. I think it helped. Last night I reviewed my notes, read IBC Chapter 16 again, did a few more practice problems, and memorized equations like crazy. I know I broke the cardinal rule of taking time off before the exam to calm down and relax, but I didn’t feel like I could this time around. Hopefully that doesn’t bite me in ass today.
My mind is still feeling a bit jumbled, but I bet part of that is due to nerves. I’m ready to give it my all and hopefully knock this one out of the park. I’ve a had tons of support from family and friends, and lots of well wishes as I prepared…including some from you, thank you!…I guess to be honest, I’d hate to let everyone down. With that in mind, the best thing to do is stay optimistic that I won’t!
Alright*deep breath* Let’s go get this over with, shall we?
