I had planned to take the test a few weeks ago, but once I received the information about how to take the test, I was dealing with the eye infection I had recently. It was difficult to concentrate on a screen for any length of time, so I postponed it until my eye was once again nice and strong.
To be honest, I was feeling intimidated, worried, and anxious, but I decided to just hold my nose and take the plunge. So last night after dinner, I sat down, logged in and started the test. You are given 2 hours to take the test and there are 125 questions. The test is open book, it may as well be as it would be difficult to monitor it if it weren't. Claire Shaeffer's book, Fabric Sewing Guide was incredible.
I love this book and it is one that I am now VERY happy to have in my sewing library. You can find it here on Amazon. I used the book exclusively except for the two times that I did a Google search.
To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with my score. I scored 91.2% out of 100. Hey, it's passing and in the old grading system it would at least be a B. I just really wanted to score 100%.
If you are thinking about working through the Master Sewing and Design Certification Program, I recommend starting with this module. It's very straight forward. There were only a couple of questions that I thought were a bit tricky, but nothing that would keep you from passing the test.
So, I now feel energized and excited about moving forward. One module down and 6 to go!!!
