Failing the CPIM Exam Is Only A Temporary Setback

Failing an exam is one of the most unenviable and demoralizing experiences in academia. Getting that failure notification after the CPIM exam makes you wonder if you’ve really prepared as beneficially as you’d thought. Benjamin Franklin once said, “I didn’t fail the test, I just found 100 ways of doing it wrong.” You didn’t fail the CPIM test; you just didn’t get on base. There is a difference Certified Ethical Hacker test. Your first attempt may not have been successful, but that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from the failure process.

To best enjoy the benefits of CPIM certification, you must dedicate yourself to pushing past the obstacles of the CPIM exams. How will you manage failure? Failing something of significance is never easy news to hear. This quick article will help you pull it together and realize your options for improving your CPIM exam grade.

This exam didn’t go as well as planned. What now? You’re locked out of that module’s exam for 30 days and you aren’t permitted to see the questions you got wrong. APICS doesn’t permit retakes before the 30 day mark because they’re sending new questions to the testing centers and want test-takers to see new and interesting questions. The walk out of the testing center may seem long and annoying, especially since APICS has only provided you with a performance index of Knowledge Areas and no real answer explanations. It’s tempting to cast this seemingly worthless piece of paper in the trash on your way out of the examination center but you must withstand the impulse. This test center printout is the key to unlocking the door in terms of passing your next CPIM attempt.

The CPIM exams all come with Knowledge Areas (or, KA going forward) that focus on particular parts of the business. Sparing you the grueling mathematical details behind the CPIM exam, APICS uses these KA to simply measure your performance against your peers to determine if you’ve passed. The distribution of KA in each CPIM exam is pretty level; the BSCM exam sports 4 of these KA while the other modules come in at three each. The problem with KA is knowing what to study and how to increase the lowest area’s score. If you’ve googled CPIM study guides or looked over CPIM information, you may have an understanding as to where APICS pulls their Body of Knowledge material. If you’ve read all there is to read, bought CPIM study guides or even paid for a tutor, you’re still not guaranteed to cover the KA that’s going to be presented to you on the exam.
