Sounds pretty typical, are those your first exams after finishing the material?

Started reading through the the textbook last week. Having studied these topics in university, much seems like review. Any suggestions on study material and strategy? I have the new textbook and the old ASM study manual (from just before the format change that added written answer questions.) What would be a good supplement to these resources?

I barely finished 80% of the material. I started ADAPT, do you think it is possible to pass this exam in 2.5 months with no study days and working full time? I'm lookin at the material/formula sheet and there is just so much material. I was thinking maybe skip this sitting and wait for april?

I just started at the beginning of August and I'm only done around 10% of the material. Just reading textbook and old ASM manual (last printing before written answers were added a few years back), although I do have a rusty knowledge of the majority of material from University courses. I'm also working full time and this is one of our busiest times. And on top of that, part time ~ 15 hours a week.

I think you have plenty of time as long as you stay committed. From my experience, putting off an exam is never worth it. The registration deadline isn't until Sept. 24, which is plenty of time to practice and reinforce your understanding. You should know by then if you'll be ready or not, no need to count yourself out prematurely.

There is so much material, I can't believe how someone can memorize all the different formulas it's discouraging.
