    So I will be pretty scarce around here for the next few days. :wtc:
    They normally allow up to a year to complete this stuff, but I had my MOS school date moved up so that I can deploy faster. Luckily some of this stuff is almost grade-school easy. :mamoru:

    List of prerequisites I have to complete before my MOS school (scheduled to start on the 18th):

    good god that looks simple... but you could always just get the answers from another person in your company (but I didn't tell you to do that).

    All done, except for two modules that I was unable to access. I'll probably get access to them tomorrow and knock 'em out in a few hours. :wiggle:

    Oh holy fuck! :eek4:

    I finally got authorization to take the last two courses. The NBC First Aid was easy. I got 100% on the exam, and finished the course & exam in probably 30 minutes or so. Then I started on the very last course... The one that I've been looking forward to all week long... And this sumbich is kicking my white ass. :wtc:

    I started on it at about 5:30, and have completed only 4 questions out of a total of 20. This fucker is seriously tough. :mad:

    Where the fuck is my cheese? :madfawk:

    I would rather know what I'm doing when it comes time to do it. Explosives aren't very forgiving. :noes:

    I just passed the half-way mark on the exam... And all I gotta say is:


    P=R3KC

    N=W/2R

    P=D2/40

    N=L-10/7+1

    :run: :run: :run: :run: :run: :run:

    Are these classes that I could take? So that I could slip a shape charge under your seat? So it'd be like poetic justice or something like that...

    It's broken up into three sections:
    COMBINED ARMS, 1900-1918
    COMBINED ARMS, 1919-1945
    COMBINED ARMS SINCE WORLD WAR II

    And the focus is on ... the history of Combined Arms. :hs:
    Poorly worded question ftl :fawk:

    Check your .mil email :noes:

    NONE of the exams were very hard or mentally taxing, except for EN0053. That fucker was the ONLY one that made me work for every single question. It would probably have been obscenely easy if I had had the opportunity to sit through a classroom-delivered version of the course, where I could ask clarifying questions, but it is still do-able as a correspondence course. I'll definitely be re-reading that one a few times.

    yes. The only test that was seriously hard was the explosives/demolition one. Every single question had a shitload of situational equations and configurations you had to go through before you could even come close to the answer.

    But yeah... multiple choice for the motherfucking win. :hs:

    I was thinking the same thing after I finished the exam and saw my results. The first word out of my mouth was "DOH!" :noes:
