Now I will most likely retake the exam before I graduate but Its only a piece of paper, I don't believe it signifies a true standard.
I gotta ask, was your employer paying for the test? I've met some MRTs that don't even play tennis or any racquet sport. That's a big let down to me. Even Mike (YULitle) admitted he did not play tennis regularly. So how can a MRT/Salesman be any better, selling you a racket or strings for that matter if they don't know what exactly a customer wants? No Offence to Mike, but he has helped many people with his videos, but he's moved on in life.
