Whew! Just took my third exam of the semester…Visual Sensation and Perception or VSP. Basically, it’s a class about how we actually see what we see. (My favorite part is understanding how Optical Illusions work.) Anyhow, I think the most stressful part about this test was that it was from a teacher that had never given me a test before. I never know what to expect the first time. Even now that the test is over, I’m still not sure how it went. I felt pretty good coming out, but the more I think about it, the more I get nervous.
Oh well, the other tests I’ve taken so far have turned out well. I even got my first sticker on my Theory II test for getting a 100%!! I was definitely more excited about the sticker than the score.
Last week, we had a practical exam on clinical skills testing pupils, eye muscles, 3-D vision, that kind of stuff. I’ve never felt so prepared…and I wasn’t the only one. The practice we get in lab really helps us master what we will need to do as doctors. I chose SCO carefully when I was deciding to attend optometry school and boy am I happy I choose SCO! I’m sure other schools do fine, but I really feel like SCO is out to help me succeed. For any future optometry students out there that still aren’t sure where to go to school, I’m surer about SCO now than ever!
