I’m beginning to wonder if it’s worth the extra stress and money to take step one if it’s past fail. I’m thinking about taking step two instead to get a score and sent me a part what is everybody else’s opinion on this. I want to be competitive and I just feel like another pass fail score is not going to set me apart.
