This Life is a Test

Well, I'm in for it. The next 2 days will challenge me mentally as I try to re-call all that I've studied and what I learned in school. I swear never heard anyone talk about certification exams in college. Everyone hears about "the bar," but no one hears about CPA exams, engineer exams and especially not Professional Geology exams. I thought I became a geologist once I was handed my diploma and received my transcript saying I passed all my major courses....little did I know, I'm nothing in the geologic world till I take a grueling state certified exam that will take up 12 hrs of my life (wait, LOADS more that that....I'm not even going to count time spent preparing for the exam, including application time...). Anyways, this is my official wake up call! Geologist out. :)

I feel the pain. Kind of. I have had the joy of watching Aaron study and take 2 separate bars. Pain and suffering that you have to pay for! A serious pound of flesh. Good luck. I know you will do great. Too bad you live in such a geologically active state, much more to know than in Kansas

Yeah, what's with all the hoop and hoorah with a degree when it's not complete without some expensive test that certifies you to do exactly what you just graduated to do? The education system is the same. ANd it bothers me how each state will make up their own junk certifications for whatever they want... ugh. You rock!!
