It is that time again. The boards are less than two months away and it is time for me to start getting nervous. It is also time to slow down everything going on in my life and concentrate on that task ahead. The boards are the last step in my career. I am looking forward to being finished with this exam.
This year they will be held in Chicago in early November. I will be hitting the books again very soon and getting some studying underway. I am glad that the majority of the grade is based on description. That’s something that I can generally handle OK. I am nervous to take it anyway. I’m also not a fan of the oral based exam. Basically sitting in front of a firing squad and being grilled. I get that they try to be as gentle as possible; but the idea of the oral exam is, and always will be, intimidating.
As always I will keep you posted on my adventures.
