"How fares my Juliet? that I ask again; For nothing can be ill, if she be well."

If great responsibility comes with great power, what are you supposed to do with a great sense of humor?

September 2020




Well, the wait is over.  My last blog was posted around the time I took my Structural Engineer licensing exam, so I guess it's appropriate that this is my next post.

First, thanks to the well-wishers. I knew as I was taking the test that I had some people thinking about me, which is just one of the many great things about CBR.  

And secondly, I didn't pass.  I honestly didn't expect to.  I wasn't prepared for it.  Which isn't to say I didn't prepare for it, I just wasted a lot of time trying to find a good place to study and didn't find it until about 3 weeks before the exam.  It is suggested that a candidate spend 14 weeks or 300 hours studying.  Obviously, there are barely 300 hours left in 3 weeks after you take out work and the occasional trip to the loo, so I didn't quite put as much time into it as I needed.

I did get a 62%, which is really encouraging, since 70% is the minimum score needed to pass.  I feel that was a fair score for the amount of studying I did get done, and if I start out right this time, I should show a lot better.  The test has a 41% pass rate, so it's not something you just decide to do for fun.

So, April 24th is the new "go" date.  I'm hoping to have better news the next time around.

  • Hope things are going to be better this time round. Hope that you will find the time even though I saw the bad news about your father-in-law.
