Time sure does fly, especially if something really important is coming up. And what could be more important to a Water Treatment Operator than certification exam day? Are you ready yet? If not, there’s still time to prepare. But don’t let this weekend — and for many of us, the Veterans’ Day Holiday on Monday — pass you by! It’s probably your last best chance to get some quality study time in.
One of the best things you can do to prepare is to sit down to a set of questions that is similar in length and difficulty to the certification exam, and then to time yourself. You need to know how rushed you will be on exam day. That will help you to work at the proper pace next Saturday — not rushing, but not wasting time either. One of the classic errors people make during exams like this is getting hung up on one problem, and then not leaving enough time to complete the other problems.
You don’t need to get every question correct! Seventy percent on the exam gets you a Water Treatment Operator certificate! So if you do find a really tough problem, and you find that you can’t solve it in less than five minutes — just move on! Skip that tough one, and come back to it later, if time permits.
