I am so petrified right now because I need to pass the examination that comes with this COBIT 5 Foundation Certification Course I'm attending. Exams scare the living crap out of me, which is probably why I have never taken steps towards becoming a CIA or a CISA. There's this fear of failure, alright, but these exams cost a lot, too! Moreover, it's also quite expensive maintaining these professional licenses.
But then eons ago I took--and thankfully passed--the CPA Board Examinations.
Not that I wasn't scared then--of course I was--but I thought simply graduating BS Accountancy meant nothing if I didn't pass the Board. Now I'm back to that remotely familiar feeling, stomach churning and all, just because attending this training meant nothing if I didn't pass the exam. Again there's cost. Again there's fear.
