UPDATE: My mil has offered to pay for a voucher so I can take the skills test again. Now I just have to figure out how to get the voucher and then figure out a way to utah to take the exam lol. but before that I need to practice taking blood pressure.

That is good news!   

I take my blood pressure a lot because I have high blood pressure (the doctor says).  LOL   There are 2 ways to take it, I'm sure you know.   Of course you listen to the heart beats, the first beat you hear is the upper pressure and the last beat you hear is the lower pressure.  You can also use the visual technique which isn't as accurate, but it gets you very close.  When the dial starts "beating" or skipping that is the high pressure and when it stops "beating" or skipping that's the lower pressure.   I'm sure you know that, but I just wanted to tell you.     

The reason I do both is because my kids are too loud sometimes so I have to use the visual technique sometimes to take mine.

Good luck.  I'm sure you'll get it this time!

I'm pretty sure that when i took it for the test I got it right, but the examiner got it wrong. She was getting on in years, and I think her hearing was going. She kept hearing it way lower than i did. lol

LOL   That could be it too.   If it's the same woman this time I would ask for "a 2nd opinion".    LOL

I'm hoping to take it at a different testing center, so I shouldn't have that problem. :)
