Ok, so by request...I've put up a freebie forum that approximates the one our study group used when we were working towards certification. (This should save you some trouble if you're trying to get an online study group going). I've linked to the Photography 8e companion site from there and to a free chat room. You'll have to register to view the forums, but go to: http://cppstudygroup.proboards70.com/ (it's a freebie board so there are banner ads, I apologize in advance! :o )

Good luck to everyone working towards Certification!

There is a small community gathering over on the CPP forum- We are starting the first week of February. If you want to play, get on over and sign up.

also, ....don't feel like you can't join in the fun just because the group's already started. I've set up the forum so that hopefully multiple groups can co-exist in harmony ;)

Hi Betsy,

Thanks so much for that link. I must not be wanted though.

I set up an account, got the activation code back and when I try to log in I get an error that tells me I need to log in....

I tried it twice (two different accounts) and I just can't get in. :(

There also seems to be nowhere to get help. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tiff

let's see. so you make an account .... llet's say user= Tiff (pw = pictures). click on the email, it says you must login. enter Tiff, pictures.... and then it should take you to a confirmation screen. You then should see a long string of numbers and need to hit submit, or enter, etc.

Is that what you've tried?

I signed up over there, but no one has been by there recently. Is everyone who signed up in there still interested?

Well, I'm a little slow - I just found this thread. Diane, what book do I need to order?

I believe this is the book. If you are at all unsure, please wait for Betsy. I'm sure she will be on tomorrow. Mine isn't here yet (I have a private source).

Lori- Great to see you on the other forum too.

Betsy and Diane, thanks! I bought the book from someone on the forum - can't wait to get it.

Can anyone tell me what is the average time that you study before taking the test? Is it months? I'm just curious how long it takes to get through the book. I would hate to start now and be in the middle of it during senior season! I guess once the book gets here I will know more (literally, lol!)

Thanks!

it depends on how quickly you read, how much of the stuff is a review ;).

we took one week per chapter when I read the book. Obviously, it only took one evening's worth of reading (or more, if spread out) to get through a chapter... but if you say a chapter a week....there are 17 chapters.... so 17 weeks. (but between you and me, some of the chapters definitely won't need you to spend much time on them).

If you wanted to read a chapter a day (feasible, if you've got the ambition) -- then it would take 17 days -- so it really depends on the timeframe you set up :D for yourself
