I am on top of the world. Hihi. I got the result of the certification exam yesterday, and I passed! Gosh, that's the power of vision board + multiple cups of coffee + Chopin. :P
I took the five-day training on April. But didn't get to take the exam until the 8th this month. I took the mock exam thrice but failed, and only got the required 80% correct answers on the 4th try. Failing the same mock exam over and over again was unnerving. When I finally passed the mock exam, failing to get decent scores on the practice exams was not very comforting either. I spent my time reviewing on coffee shops, and listening to Chopin. But I could not focus, I could only manage to review for two hours a day, and spent the rest of my time procrastinating. On the last week before the exam, I tried to answer as much practice exams as I could, and tried to devour as much information as possible. I could not fail.
On the day of the exam, I finished answering in two hours, and reviewed my answers for another hour. The exam was a bit confusing. After two weeks of waiting, I received the email. I successfully passed the exam. Great. This is my third testing certification in 6.5 years. I am happy.
