....I type in what it sounds like, or leave a blank if I was told to type verbatum? In the past I did only Rad for a small hospital, and we always put what it sounded like because that's what the docs preferred. I suspect this isn't the norm. Am I right?

Audiometric testing help
Subject: Audiometric testing help

The doctor is dictating (he is a terrible mumbler) a letter to an attorney about a hearing test for a patient. 

"Testing performed on Dec. 13 the ?4 frequency average ???? 2000, 3000 cycles in the right ear....."

I don't know what he is saying before 2000, it kind of sounds like the word "found" and then something else that is more mumbling.  Also, do I type the number 4 or should I type the word four? 

I appreciate any replies.

Subject: She's not testing. She has stated before that she's

new to the field but has been doing ortho so far.  She is now doing some family practice.   We were all new once right?    If you read all the posts she even thought she could not post so often, which is not true.  You can post as many times as you like I would think.  I don't remember reading any rules stating you cannot.   I think they just like you to try to stick to the appropriate subject boards accordingly.   I only try to post answers to word help questions if I'm pretty sure.  If I'm not sure then I usually don't reply with anything at all.   I had to put my 2 cents in here though being another MT who does have a lot of experience but likes to learn from others as well.

Questions while testing? sm
Subject: Questions while testing? sm

I guess I am slow but I saw a post where someone posted for a test they were taking and someone picked them up on it - I have seen this more than once. My question is, how can anyone possibly be testing and have the time to come on the board, ask for help, and wait for an answer while testing for a company? Perhaps I'm not savvy but I tested for a company once and I barely had time to finish properly, lest take the time to ask questions, I had to kind of know the answers or fail. I'm not trying to be nasty. If there were companies who gave this kind of time, I might not be leary of testing, as I have all the proper tools, I just didn't think I'd have time to even use all my expensive tools. Just curious, that's all. Thanks for any info.
