The last few weeks have been a harsh lesson in patience and

The really amusing thing? I opened the mail a couple of weeks ago when my license came through ...
I really felt prepared. I had done a review course by a company that claims a
pass rate of 99%. I had also studied a very well-known study guide, in addition
