So, it's been awhile...and in case you hadn't heard the word yet...

I passed my state insurance exam :)

Additionally, my application for a state insurance license was approved :)

So now I am contracted as an insurance agent with Bankers Life & Casualty.

So little time, so much to learn!

Still studying via online learning modules and I have to complete all of those before I can get paid; they are certainly time consuming, so I'll be around when I get the chance.

Hope this finds everyone doing well!

Save the paperwork, save the world...

Insurance Exam Update

I've completed everything in the insurance course, scored well on all the practice quizzes and today took the simulated exam, needing an 80% to pass before I can move on to the state exam on Wednesday.

I took the simulated exam twice today, missing my 80% target both times.


I'm not sure why this exam was kickin my ass today. Tired? Maybe. Information overload? Probably. But I'll try again tomorrow, when all the kids are gone to school (yay for 1st days!), although noise and outside disturbances weren't really a problem today. This exam has 160 questions and takes about 90 to 120 minutes to complete. The official exam on Wednesday will allow up to 3 hours to finish. But first things first.

Attempt number 3 begins at approximately 9am tomorrow - once I get fully awake, that is. Stay tuned...

Save my brain, save the world...
