Studying for the IBLCE Exam

Oooh, the mere mention of “exam” sends a shiver down my spine!

I always find it difficult to know where to start when it comes to studying or the IBLCE exam. I have sat the exam a few times now, and each time my preparation has been a little different.

When I sat the exam the first time I did an IBCLC course that was all by written course work: multi-choice question and short answer items that we had to post (yes, post!) back to the course assessors. I can only imagine the workload of those course assessors, and am very appreciative of all the time and generous guidance that they offered! Back then the use of email and the internet for online articles was not what it is now (yes, it was the time of the dinosaurs!). In order to prepare for the exam I had to buy text books…expensive textbooks! Thankfully I was preparing to sit the exam with a few of my work colleagues, so we shared that expense and established out own study group. As a novice, I think the study group was invaluable: it allowed us to share information that we had found and also to urge each other on when we lost sight of the end goal. We often would meet at our local Australian Breastfeeding Association branch office because they had a fabulous library of texts and articles, dedicated solely to lactation – it was our Aladdin’s cave! My friends and I would try to meet there once a week to study and share stories (oh, and sharing yummy food, some recipes and lots of laughter as well!). My friends were what helped me through the exam that first time.
