Dear Pat and Champions Staff,
I just want to thank you all for assisting me in passing my National and State exams. I have been a Loan Processor with Gold Financial for the last 7 years. I took an attempt at the National exam when we were first required to be licensed just to satisfy my supervisor's request. As a Processor, I was certain that I would pass the exam. I was mistaken. Fast forward to present day, my supervisor again requested that I take the exam to obtain my license. Having been defeated once and now having several more years of Processing under my belt, I realized that it was time for me to rid myself of 'the monkey on my back.' I signed up for the 20 hour course with Champions as well as the National and State prep courses. I must say, sacrificing 3 working days and 2 weekend days didn't really sound like my cup of tea per say. However, Pat made it fun and informative. Having that interaction helped me tremendously. Pat not only taught us the course material but he also taught us testing techniques. Now having all of these tools at my finger tips, I felt ready to take my exams. To prepare for my exams, I re-read the course material while taking notes and marking where I felt I struggled. I then re-took all of the chapter quizzes and then took some mock exams. For every question I got wrong, I re-reviewed that section. The morning of, I reviewed my notes and re-reviewed my struggles, took a deep breadth and told myself that I just needed to try. During my exam and as Pat had instructed, I read the question, read the answers, re-read the question and then re-asked myself the question. I found that by re-asking myself the questions, I was able to see what questions were designed to trick you. I marked very few questions for review. Upon going back to review, I could not find a better reason to change my answer so as Pat had instructed, I didn't change my answers.
I honestly am beyond grateful for the days spent with all of you. Pat is a hoot and a great teacher. The rest of the Champions Staff was very welcoming and inviting and conversational all the while maintaining a professional atmosphere. When I decide to further pursue my career more (as Pat would say, 'I will not have just one source of income'), I will most certainly come back to you guys. You all were a blessing for me and because of all of you, I am well on my way to a new chapter in my career. I will forever market you guys to all who will listen and ask.
