What a shame! I hope that you're able to figure something else out that will work for your family ((hugs)))
FWIW, I've read recently that they're looking at going to computer testing, which would likely mean that the results would be within days :)
I'm in Atlanta but I can't take that workshop. I will be at the NWGA BFC Conference on March 30th tho... anyone else? You get 6 ed hours there. Diana West is the speaker. :)
I joined the FB group too! :) I'm stoked to be sitting for the exam much earlier than I thought I could!!! :)

Anybody attend Marie Biancuzzo's test prep? I'm here in MD and I just finished the three day course. It's was decent. Lots of prep prior though...
If anyone of you has taken the IBCLE exam could you let us know how many hours the exam is? What are the challenges? What should we focus on pictures?
Is enervation and muscles a must? Any personal experience is welcome. Thanks Rmadhavapeddi
I odn't think the yahoo group is active at all, but please come the facebook group - it's super active :) http://www.facebook.com/groups/2011ibclc
I felt pretty good about it. There were some very good sophisticated distractors (in the morning, especially, I thought) that threw me for a bit of a loop and I'm sure I made some stupid mistakes as a result. Overall, I'm feeling confident and can't wait for October! When you re-cert (10 years from now!), try to get a copy of Case Studies in Breastfeeding by Karin Cadwell. It was very helpful.
I may need to get a copy of those case studies for when I retake the exam next year! HA HA!! My mind is filled with facts...wasn't prepared for the abundance of case studies. I feel as though I could have gotten an 80% or a 20%...yucky feeling! Time will tell, but the waiting is torture!
