I think I might be screwed for this one. First time that work has ever sincerely got in the way of studying, and it's not going to let up until March. I'm only through Clark at this point.

Perhaps it's because my experience is in pricing, but I wish they'd motivate this a little more and give me reason to care. It just feels like I'm learning all of these methods and I'm destined to...
