  1. It’s not cheesy if it works lol
  2. I used the data to nail down a good approximation for MD’s results too. I’m thinking the week of December 9.
  3. I’ve been envisioning my routine on exam morning. I’m still working on calming my nerves.
  4. @Will.I.Am thanks. I never saw it written that way. Used to seeing WRE.
  5. My morning was better than I expected. I spoke with Samir and he recommended some key subjects to focus on for the afternoon.
  6. I took the EET Simulated 8-hr exam today. The morning was good. Afternoon was brutal. It exposed a couple of weaknesses that I need to work through. Did anyone else take it this weekend?
  7. @john813 desperate times call for desperate measures lol
  8. Working Moms. So good... the complexity of the characters' emotions is realistic. Some of the life logistics are not but if you ignore it and just take in the story, it's pretty good. It's like Sex and the City but with marriage and kids. Think... Miranda spin-off. HBO OnDemand - The Righteous Gemstones. If you liked Vice Principals, this is right up your alley. Anything Danny McBride and Walter Goggins is a winner.
  9. I read this yesterday and wanted to drop it here for anyone who might need it: Preparation + Trust = Confidence Almost there.
  10. I could see my EET notes helping me out through conceptual questions. I was putting together an index for the depth section and scanning through the binder and I saw so many bits of information packed in there that I kind of forgot about. I answered a question on a practice exam a few days ago and the answer was Nurse-Saul Maturity Method. I flippantly thought, "never heard of it". But while thumbing through the binder yesterday I saw it right there in black and white. So needless to say, I will definitely make a point to read that binder a few more times before exam day. I think my keyword index will help too.
  11. I just experienced a REALLY sad moment. I got roped into a conversation with a nice old lady while on a site walk through with some Contractors. We got to talking about triathlons. I tried to tell her the difference between a sprint, oly, half ironman and full ironman and couldn't remember all of the various distances. I used to live and breathe swimbikerun but PE topics have ruined me. All of those fun activities feel so far away. I cried tears of joy while watching Aladdin the other day. This exam can't come fast enough... but not really. Just the other day, I gave a clerk at a store register the wrong phone number. I was thinking through a problem that I solved earlier that day. Outrageous. omgiwantmylifeback
  12. You should call your State board and ask the question. I have a NO SHOW on my NCEES record. According to my State's rules, it does not count against my attempts. It does not count as a FAIL. It's just listed as a NO SHOW. I registered for the exam for April 2018 in an attempt to "force" myself and my world around me to get on the ball with preparation. Life got in the way and personal logistics didn't allow me to prepare (work, 3 year old, husband changing jobs which upended our routine, etc.). It happens. Thankfully, it's a forgiving process. Because exam authorizations have already been issued, you will not receive a refund unfortunately. ETA: I wrote an email to the Board representative and told him that I wouldn't be able to sit for the exam. He just said "Thank you for letting us know." That was it.
  13. This is solid advice. Thank you. I'll think through the best approach to take.
