Well...

that was completely and utterly horrible. Ugh.

Suffice it to say that I guessed on probably 90% of the questions, so if I'm lucky, I passed, and if I'm unlucky, I failed. Oh, well.

Why do I need to know the innards of a computer? I mean, they let me take my driving test to get my license, and nobody asked me about the transmission or carburetor! ARGH. Plus, a bunch of the questions had answers that were all acronyms, so I had to guess those, too.

But I'm usually very good at multiple choice questions, so I hope I'm lucky!

The hands-on exercises were fucking stupid. Problem was, we were supposed to be tested on our knowledge of Office 2007, but the computer I was tested on had Office 1997-2003.

So some of the required tasks I was unable to complete. Fuck. Well, I did make some notes for the instructor who will be grading the test, just to let him or her know how fucked up everything was. The proctor told me that a gal taking the test yesterday had exactly the same issues as I. Maybe they won't take so many points off.

The ironic thing is, I had been so worried about the PowerPoint exercise, because I never learned or used PowerPoint in my life. I did a quick online tutorial last night and kept my fingers crossed...well, the PowerPoint thing was EASY. It was the Word and Excel that I found so very difficult to deal with. The things I thought I really had a good handle on. Well, fuck it. If I did fail, I'll just have to suck it up and take the class. It's not going to put me behind in my schedule, or anything.

It'll just be excruciatingly boring.

And I'll be out the fifty bucks I had to fork over to take this stupid test.

*sigh*

Ugh, sorry you had such a lousy experience. :( I hope you won't have to take the class, but if you do, take it online if you can! That way you'll be able to breeze through the easy (boring) stuff without having to waste time in a classroom. I'm taking one of those stupid required computer classes now (Word, Excel, Access) and am SO glad I only have to spend an hour a week online, two at the most if the assignment is complicated. If I had to take this class on campus, I'd go nuts.

Good Point, Miz Minka. I love online classes. For some reason, my procrastination doesn't extend to online classes. I've always done very well with them. Weird. :D

So it's over now...no need to dwell on it until you get your scores. Kick back, watch that overdue movie and be a happy nurse-to-be!! (OH, and snuggle the doggies...b/c that just makes everything better..all the time!)

Shannon, you got that right! My pups really do provide comfort, and it's badly needed today. Well, I'll watch my movie later and just stop worrying about this test.

Oh well... NEXT! :-) I'm sure you'll handle what ever happens...

DaddyBear said...

You did your best, and I'm sure you did fine. Most of those tests seem harder than they are.

I agree, take some time and destress!

Old NFO and DaddyBear, THANK YOU!

I love how supportive everyone is being. I really appreciate it. :)
