I definitely fell off the studying train in the last month. I'm just starting in mid June and only going to study during work time for a month or two and see where I'm at then.

I doubt it. I don't think the CAS's goal is to screw people over with ridiculous pass marks. Though fall exams tend to have lower pass rates than the spring, so who knows? :lol:

Hmm, hopefully the CAS will announce something soon too. If it's in mid-July I wouldn't complain too much. Studying an hour a day for 3 months should make me super prepared by then.
