Fun with Examinations

First off, I got my glasses. Be afraid, be very afraid. A greywolf with glasses. Actually, I don't look too bad, and given the wardrobe overhaul I've been doing, I actually look rather ok now. Some of the ladies at work have been making complimentary comments about my style of dress of late, although to be honest, it's just off the rack at Sears and JC Pennys...

Now for the fun bit. A few days ago, I was reading one of my computer news sources, and spotted something of interest. Microsoft was doing beta testing of a new version of their MCP/MCSE exams for Windows 2000 Professional and Server, and was offering a limited chance to take the tests FOR FREE! That's right, kids, Microsoft was giving you a chance to get your certification at no cost. Granted, it was a one-shot deal, but frankly when it is offered on a silver platter... you grab and run.

So I did. I signed up with the code for the freebie test, and told my boss about it. See, Boeing unlike a lot of other places I've worked, wants you to get training, and will even pay for it. Well, they'll pay for the training, but not the tests themselves. But it looks good considering that I'm going through this initial Personal Development Partnership thing.

Off I go to the testing center several miles away in Niceville (might as well call it Middleofnowhereville and it'd be closer to the mark) at the Okaloosa-Walton Community College. And I take the test. And I sweat through the test. And I chew on the questions. And I start to wonder if this was a mistake. And I get finished.

And I passed. Glory be and goddess bless. *GRYN* So I'm happy... and I'll be happier tomorrow at the reactions from my co-workers.

Ain't I evil?
