    The waiting is a killer and Kansas City lay's right on the border of Kansas and Missouri . All the Kansas guys received their info last Wednesday . Must have been asked a dozen times "How'd Ya Do?' ..... Of course One loud mouth said the failure notice's are slower .....

    Dustinlb, here’s proof that it isn’t a huge deal to get thru it. I have been taking it every renewal cycle that was required of me since it has been in existence and scored pretty much the exact same thing each time since the mid 90s. It’s all about how well you use your time, and knowing that the best answer [in the opinion of the test committee] is not always the right answer, but it’s still the one they are looking for. http://s1029.photobucket.com/albums...ion=view&current=My2012NCCCOrenewalscores.jpg

    Good luck. I will say tho I refuse to take the small hydro cert' since it is so unlikely that we will ever buy anything that small and I won’t be on it if we did. I just figured I would save myself time and aggravation that way.

    Yeah the practicals are super easy if you have any decent operating skills. The scores I posted are all just my written exams. They gave me my test results within 30 minutes, but it took 3 weeks to get them in printed form by the mail.

    I am renewed. Core and 4 endorsements for the next 5 years...

    Have to say, there were a few questions that had me completely dumbfounded. Guess its just luck of the draw...

    Made a 95 on the core... Made a dead 70 on large hydraulic and lattice crawler, 85 on small hydraulic and an 80 on lattice truck.

    Here's the kicker: I made a perfect 100 on ALL my load chart questions (3 per endorsement). I would recommend anyone who is renewing soon to review specific knowledge and new OSHA rules. Take it easy on the load chart questions. Like I said before, there were a few questions that had me completely dumbfounded...
