    How hard the exam is depends on what side of town you plan to operate on. If you intend to operate anywhere in town except the far east side, then the test should be a snap for you as long as you properly prepare for it.

    If you DO intend to operate on the far east side of Columbus, I wouldn't even bother trying to take the test. They'd give you an incredibly difficult version of the test in that case. This special version of the test is so difficult in fact, that you'd probably need therapy if you tried to take it. Sorry to break the bad news to you. I just felt I owed it to you to give you a warning. :)
