'Twas the Night Before the Exam

Written by  Russell Bowen

'Twas the night before the exam, and all through his home,
The only creature stirring was the IH reading his tome.
His TLV® book was spread open wide,
and he was bent over a calculator trying to decide...
"What was that equation for radiation activity decay?
I do hope they won't ask that question today!"

The holiday season should be a time of joy and good will to all, but it can also be one of SHEER PANIC for industrial hygienists studying for the dreaded certification exam. We know you're reading your TLV book and checking it twice. You've been working ventilation problems and solving them nice. Visions of noise equations are dancing in your dreams, and all you really want to do is scream.

The last couple of weeks were pretty crazy for the faculty of Bowen EHS, Inc. We received regular emails from folks with last minute studying questions; some messages contain 10, 20 or even 50 problems. We were (and are) happy to assist our clients in any way we can. After all, we're here to do everything possible to help prepare you to pass. It is painful, though, to watch you turn yourselves inside out at the last minute with cramming.

Our holiday gift to you is the below studying suggestion:

  • Post questions in the subject-specific study forums available through the Bowen EHS, Inc. Member Center. This is the absolute best way to get a timely, accurate response. Our faculty and staff automatically receive copies of these postings, as do other clients. You are more likely to get a quick, informative response this way because it is much easier to respond to one or two questions at a time rather than to many problems all at once. Also, you're tapping into the entire brain trust here at Bowen EHS, Inc. You can't beat that.

Remember that all you need to do is pass. You don't have to get a 100%. No one knows every answer on the exam, not even Santa. We hope that all the equations dancing in the dreams of our clients become sugar plums of certification this holiday season.

Happy Holidays to all,
