Yeah! I passed the certification exam (in spite of having way too much fun and not enough studying) in Phoenix--I was worried. But I passed!

Now on to the images--

Good luck to all my fellow testers!

Hi Elizabeth;

Isn't it a help to have it multiple choice ? If just asked for an answer you may not remember but given 4 possibles it is like "oh, yeah ... that'as it" ! :)

So, congratulations and now on to the image submission. Get them up on the galleries for critiques soon.

hey Congrats Elizabeth!!! Fantastic!


I dont' think I passed. I'm okay with that though- I knew I'd have to come back to the states to retake it...a good excuse for more shopping!

Wouldn't it show that I at least passed the image submission?? Because it doesn't - not to mention a merit point for the pre-convention class I took... ??

Thanks everyone for the congratulations--and for all the help and encouragement I have received from all of you over the past couple of years. I wouldn't have stayed the course without it. I'm looking forward to putting up some images for critique.

Erin, I'm still thinking positive for you! And yes, at least the image part is done for you. That part is a little tougher for me because of having to make the choices. I'd rather take the test! And yes, multiple choice helps, although it is my least favorite test method. I tend to overanalyze and start to get confused--

Glad it's over for sure--

Elizabeth

I am crossing my fingers that you answered 70 correctly.

Congratulations, Elizabeth!

I also received my blue envelope in today's mail saying I passed the written in Phoenix. Now it's on to image selection. I'm still debating how to deal with that since most of my business to date has been stock photography (most recently 6 photos in the February 2009 Sunset magazine Garden Bonus section). The gentleman administering the exam in Phoenix said I could submit photos that were published in the past two years. Or I could wait until I get enough portrait customers and send those along.

Having the test all multiple choice certainly made it easier, but even so it's been about 30 years since I was in a classroom taking tests.

Does the test cover view cameras, or has it moved to digital?

I've been avoiding the test for years because I don't want to learn view camera. Film isn't a problem, but I'm curious how much the testing has embraced digital...

thanks Craig- Me too- but I was so dog tired that week, I wouldn't be surprised... it's okay. Now that I've done the flight- I am finding the military flights more reliable!

Don't worry. The majority of the test is on things that are current and relevant, and much less on historical items.

Don't avoid it just for that. It's only like 1 or 2 questions on view cameras. Nothing all that tough either. (Just do it!)

so I'm wondering about the color of the envelope- does it mean anything?

Apparently, it doesn't mean anything bad.... :D

Congratulations to all who have passed--especially Erin! You'll have to come up with another reason to come back home!

Rose Mary, I'll see you in Raleigh--gosh, it's right around the corner--
