Pass the Exam the Next Time!

Did you fail the exam?
Let Marie help you prepare to re-take the exam and pass!


The exam is tough, really tough. Many people do not pass on the first try. So don't beat yourself up. However, it is a fact that most people that have failed the exam once will not pass the next time unless they identify what went wrong and fix the problem.

Marie's new book can help you determine why you did not pass the exam and will tell you how to improve your scores the next time. So pick yourself up and try again.

    “I passed the IBLCE exam this time after 2 fails. Huge thank you Marie for your [online] review course and the book about How to Pass the IBLCE Exam This Time. I wasn’t even going to test for a third time but after reading this book it gave me the courage I needed to test again. I liked being able to listen to the lectures on the go usually in the pick up line waiting for kids to get out of school. The [Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos] workbook was a big help along with the Atlas. The practice exams were very helpful and much like the outline of the real exam.

    Some of the more common mistakes made by first-time exam takers:

    • NOT taking a comprehensive lactation education course that covers the entire IBLCE Exam Detailed Content Outline
    • Taking the exam in a language other than your first language
    • Clinical experience that focuses on a specific setting (hospital only, etc.) or a specific chronological period (newborns only etc.)
    • Assuming that your years of experience will get you through the exam
    • Not recognizing that the exam is global and therefore, how you do things at your place of employment or how things are done in your country, is not always the correct answer.
    • Severe test anxiety

    Marie’s General Recommendations for Those that have Failed the Exam in the Past

    If you did poorly across the board and never took a comprehensive lactation course

    If you did poorly across the board due to gaps in your knowledge

    If You are Weak in Certain Disciplines or Chronological Periods

    If the photo section was your downfall

    • Marie's Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos - With Marie's Workbook, use the more than 400 photos in The Breastfeeding Atlas to study and practice for the photo questions on the exam and to improve your physical assessment skills.

    If you know your stuff but have severe test anxiety or poor test performance
