Gearing up for BEC in Three Weeks

Fall is here!! I wish it wasn’t.

It’s the last testing window, winter is approaching, and the new year will be before you can even say “where did the year go by?”

On the bright side, NFL official referees are back, my fantasy football team is finally beginning to play at the caliber it should, baseball playoffs have begun (sad to see my favorite player, Chipper Jones, retire and GO GIANTS!), and NBA is about to start!!

I’ve finally scheduled BEC for the end of October. It took a while to get my NTS from California but I really hope taking the test in Oregon won’t be an issue.

I’ve double checked and triple checked but I still get weary about taking the test in a different jurisdiction then when I’m registered for.

I hate to admit it but I haven’t been doing well with my study schedule. I feel like the only time I can squeeze in study time for BEC is Friday to Monday.

I’m taking a class at the community college, which will put me over the 225 quarter hour mark, and I also found a job! I’m probably going to start going back to waking up at the crack of dawn (4 AM) soon so I can get more study time in….but it’s too cold to wake up that early. I’ll have to gradually work at getting to the 4 AM mark.

I’ve got 3 weeks to get cracking and it starts today!! Good luck to every testing this window!!

Until next time,
