Most people cringe at the words: quiz, test, exam, midterm, etc. Then there are the few where a test does not even phase them, they casually study then take the test with ease and pass with flying colors. That does not describe me. In fact, I am the person who gets a running start by getting into a good study regime early on, then I miraculously get distracted and lose my focus, then I scramble to cram in any last studying before taking the test, and I take most tests all on adrenaline overload mixed with a cup of anxiety. Afterwards, I stress all my black hairs into gray until the results come in.
I write this as I plan on taking my professional engineering exam this Friday. If I pass, I become a licensed engineer. If I don't pass, then I will be back at square one of getting into a good study regime for the April test. Wish me luck...it is a grueling 8 hours long (16 for those in Cali), but once someone gets their PE it supposedly opens up numerous new doors of opportunities...ones that include a pay raise and the potential of future litigation. But hopefully no one will have to walk though that latter door.
