I am going to do PA next. I have no experience with R. I'm thinking I'll start in August. I guess my plan is to start the modules and see what they're like; then come up with a more solid plan.

This is really interesting to read. Sadly, my biggest take away is that if they aren't double grading ALL the exams (less than 1/2?!) HOW does it take so FREAKING LONG? They need more graders because...

Anyone in here done FAP yet?

I'm trying to get a realistic idea of how long it will take. I know people can fly through it; I won't be doing that. Trying to figure out how it fits in/around PA.
