My first exam ever, FAR, is over. Im relieved that I made it through and my training wheels are off.
The one and a half hour or so drive one way to the testing center into city traffic was more stressful than sitting for the exam! (Yes, I live rural). Im a sci-fi fan so I was thinking teleportation would have been really nice.
I did what any other NINJA would do; listened to NINJA Audio for the whole drive. There are a couple of tollbooths to pass through, and I was a little peeved about stopping at them not so much because I had to give them money, but because they were interrupting my audio!
The Prometric process was a breeze, and my nerves settled down after I started the exam. I had a moment of panic when SIMS started loading and it looked like a jumbled mess for about 12 seconds. Those few seconds felt like an eternity, but it finally loaded properly.
I almost wish it hadnt loaded because the set of SIMS they threw me was horrendous. All three MCQ testlets werent too bad, but the SIMS, wow. For an hour and a half I sat there staring at 5 of them thinking, what are you asking me to do?
