yeah I'm pretty happy. burns a little to know I would probably have done better if I read the instructions more closely but lesson learned.
Don't feel bad, NOBODY reads the instructions...everybody jumps in. For a short time the examinee was asked to initial each line that they read it, I wish we still had that.
When we gave the essay exam getting the examinees to number the pages correctly was like herding cats, all of a sudden intelligent adults became children with one of those big fat pencils and paper which tore as soon as you touched it with the lead. I'm not quite sure why that was, but eventually I made a template and gave it to every examinee. Several still got it wrong.
thanks Mike. I've got some time before I'm eligible for the written exam (I've only got 3.5 points right now) but you can be sure I'll read all the instructions carefully when I do.
Big thing with the written exam is practicing answering those questions as quickly as possible. I got my exam, read through it, and thought "Wow I'm going to ace this thing. I could answer these with my eyes closed."... Well that is true... but answering them in the allotted time proved to be a different thing altogether lol.
