Not alot of crafting

This week I had to take my test for Pharmacy Tech Certification for work. I started the classes in Jan and took the test with the PCTB on Marh 12,2008. I have to say that it was the hardest test I have ever taken in my 45 years. Now there I go telling you how old I am. LOL

My schedule time for 5:00 in the afternoon. To have already been stressed to know it was THE Day was enough then to have to wait that long was horrible. Rachel (SIL) rode the hour drive to Birmingham with all the traffic involved in driving on the interstates. We got there an hour early. the only good thing from that was we didn't have to wait to take the test.

Inside the test center we were finger printed, photos taken before and after the test was over. They say it was for sercuity reasons. Yea right. But the test was two hours long. We weren't allowed any breaks until finished.

I have to say that out of the 90 questions on the test if I got 45 right I would be happy. It was a hard test and had lots of hospital measurements that I don't or wont ever use in my job. So doesn't look like I did very well. You have to score at least a 650 to pass.

I will get my results on March 24,2008 by email and snail mail. IF by chance I did pass I will tell you there will be one LARGE party going on.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that you passed the test. Sounds like the test is a one size fits all and everyone is expected to know "everything" about "everything." Give yourself a pat on the back for taking it in the first place. ;D
Love ya,
