BJCP Tasting Exam
« on: November 07, 2014, 07:55:36 PM »
Hey All,

I'm taking my tasting exam tomorrow and I just heard from the exam organizer that there are two seats open still. So anyone in the Sacramento area want to jump in on an exam short notice, let me know!

Good luck, Jonathan!  The number of people that an exam administrator has to sign up in order to fill twelve seats on exam day is just crazy.

I hope it went well.  I start a primer class in December for a spring taste exam, so I will be reading up on scoring and practicing with score sheets this winter.

I think it went well. won't know for sometime but from discussions other class members had with the proctors and the exam organizer we all did well enough to pass as certified at least.

Of course that's just barely good enough for me. I want that 80+ score. No rush though as I still only have 6 points.

Good luck Jonathan!!  Hope you scored high.  I will most likely wait until San Diego to take the tasting exam.  It's almost impossible to get into one within a year on taking the online exam around where I live anyway.

I will not be surprised if you receive a score of 80+.  Like Jim, you took the time to properly prepare for the exam before sitting for it.

It takes some practice. I work for an elected official,  so I am all about waiting. Compared to 8 years, a few months is nada.

If it is any consolation, you should receive your BJCP ID in a couple of weeks.
