You guys are dedicated. Even if I had instant exam results, I still wouldn't be starting. Need some time to rest my poor brain.

Fall is the worst time for me to take exams so I need to get started as early as possible. My husband coaches football so he is MIA August-November which leaves me to take care of the house, dog and toddler.

I am highly motivated to never take a fall exam again...

I'm hoping to get through most of the reading before results come out so that I can then focus on study guide/TIA.

I'm going for syllabus, mostly because learning objective A papers seem to be intact based on the syllabus update memo.

I found I do better compartmentalizing and retrieving the information when I learn it in the same order it is tested on.
