    [​IMG] But, I just cannot get these right~!

    I am taking a professional exam for licensure in my state. It has been a LONG time since I had to do one of these. So, I am working on the practice exam and I am getting almost half of them wrong! [​IMG]

    So, I went back and checked my answers and - sheesh! The problem is I simply do NOT agree with the answers! Seriously. I have been in practice for 18 years! These answers are stupid and wrong! I am going to so fail this thing! My only option is to study to the test which is just wrong.

    Does this mean I have sucked at this all these years??? [​IMG] I think these egg heads who make this stuff up have never actually done the job!

    Alright, rant over I need to study.

    Trust me,, no teacher put together the tests for licensure in my state either! I just mark what the politicians want not what I think and I always get it right.

    I've had the same problem with certain tests! The questions are not always detailed enough and I'm always thinking "Well it depends. If this is...". Or they are not worded correctly! I'm trying to teach kids to think critically when it seems like what test writers want are straight rote answers! Just memorize the junk (correct or not) and spit out what we want. [​IMG]

    Oh, I know those tests! Such dumb answers, but yet they are correct [​IMG] Here's what you do - Leave your common sense at the door [​IMG] (I'm talking insurance and securities licensing now...)
