Each year, I spend hours talking to test-takers, usually first-time test-takers, who are worried, worried, worried about preparing for and passing the IBCLC exam. But you can get help before the IBCLC exam and leave the worry behind.
No need to go in blind
Yes, it’s possible to see — as clearly as is possible — what will be covered on the exam.
No, there’s no way to know the exact questions you’ll face on this year’s exam. But there’s a way to know with absolute certainty the 7 disciplines (and more than 100 subtopics) that are on the IBCLC exam. The IBLCE makes it clear in their Detailed Content Outline.
Take one or more of my practice exams. Instead of worrying about what you don’t know, you’ll see what you don’t know. I said “see.” When you can better see your weaknesses, you can move forward, get help before the IBCLC exam and leave the worry behind.
Get a full-blown all-online review course. It addresses those 7 disciplines, and will force you to see material you hadn’t even thought to review.
No need to go in with a deaf ear
I’ve heard people say, “No, I don’t need your help, I’ve been a nurse for 27 years and I know all of this stuff.” Turning a deaf ear is just denial. A few months later, those same people call and tell me they failed.
Don’t disbelieve, minimize, or just flat out ignore friends or co-workers who insist it’s the hardest exam they’ve ever taken. I’ve heard hundreds of people say that. And yes, I agree. It’s a tough exam. And yes, nurses, I’d say it’s much tougher than the NCLEX.
No need to go it alone
Are you married to the idea of DIY? Really?
I’ll bet you don’t clean your own gutters, bake your own bread, or steam-clean your own carpets. Undoubtedly, with enough time, training, and energy, you could do all of those tasks. But I’m guessing that you hire someone to do most (if not all) of those chores.
