The tests are a bit daunting in comparison. As I say, I am not opposed to learning, but the difference in requirements is staggering and the questions are not easily answered by watching the videos and taking notes. And don’t sluff it off on that I am an idiot. I graduated number 1 out of a class of 525 from college. Your advertising for the CEC video program seems misleading. I am disappointed.
you should be proud of yourself then for having passed a difficult test (I assume you did). Even though the people walking out of the lecture at the conference and you both have earned the same CECs, the fact that you needed to do more research to pass the test has probably increased your knowledge much more. So you have really gained a lot by watching the video program.
This would be quite in character with somebody who graduated first out of 525. What are you disappointed about?
Ah, there is where you are wrong. I did not pass the test. I did gain a lot by watching the video. When I missed things, I backed it up and rewatched. i took notes. I looked at the handouts. And I guess I will watch it and study again, retake the test and eventually get the CECs. However, I would not have had to do all this to get the CECs at a conference.
