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 taking the Marie Biancuzzo cram course and picture perfect in Atlanta March 30-April 1, 2011.  Anyone else?  I'd love to find a hotel room mate to share the expenses!

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!!!  :)

I am in Louisiana and will be sitting on July 25th in Jackson, MS.  I am looking for a land study group and an online one.

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...

I was hoping to be able to attend a study group, but her locations are too far away for me to travel.

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

Was this course informative? Do you feel confident after the course? I know it all depends on how much we study but from your personal experience how was it?

Thanks

How did you all do on your test?  It's hard for me to judge because it is not what I expected.  I know a million facts BUT the exam was tons of case studies!!!  AAAhhhhhhh!!!!

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!
