St. Patrick's Day
Interesting facts 

  • St. Patrick was actually ossociated with the color blue not green.  Instead, the Irish independence movement during the 18th century is attributed to the color.
  • St. Patrick was British not Irish and of Roman descent
  • New York and Chicago celebrate big!  New York City has one of the biggest walking parades, over 250,000 participants and since 1962, Chicago celebrates by dumping green dye into the Chicago River.  
  • The traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage has nothing to do with corn.  Instead in the process of curing beef, large grains of salt is used also known as "corns."

Test Taking Technique:
By Dr. Krishna Das, ABC course director 

ABOG set a precedent in 2010 exam by not relinquishing the board exam scores, so candidates received only a pass or fail grade.

Don’t cry over spilled milk; rather let’s add some yummy cookies. This report has two pieces of helpful information. One is your raw score. In the past there was little incentive to correlate board and CREOG performance, so there are only a few studies. However, we believe a score of 200 or more predicts passing your boards. If you didn’t’ score this minimum of 200, you must get crackin’.
