BEC-2 Homework

69 days remaining
Mood - Annoyed
Study Time – 3.0 hours (225.0 total - BEC - 18.5 - REG: 118.0 - AUD: 89.5)
Scores:  AUD-94, REG-??

I am a bit annoyed with the questions tonight.  I got 81% correct overall.  It would help a great deal if the questions were written in plain English.  I find it sort of amusing that they want the test takers to write good, clear responses in the written sections while butchering clarity in their own questioning.  It is highly annoying when you know the concept being asked, know the ins and outs, and then miss the questions because you can't figure out what the question is actually asking or the answer is actually saying.
The above rant aside, I need to re-read the strategic planning sections.  I also need to take a look at the foreign currency stuff.  The foreign currency stuff was particularly bad about horrible wording, but the class facilitator did email some additional material on the subject.

Overall I am a bit disappointed with my performance.  This is somewhat of a mental issue though.  On AUD I routinely scored in the lower to mid-80s on my first time through the questions.  I just seem to have this mental image that I should be at 90% or close to it (87% or more) when I do these, even on my first time.  Like before I just need to do these questions over and over until I get the hang of how they word them.
