After getting EL up to 8.5, I'm consistently getting 2829 on level 56s now. I keep missing a question here and there on greeks or exotic options. Overall, I feel pretty confident though. One week out, so I'll probably just do a few more level 56s and review Greeks/chooser options. I really don't even want to bother with the lookback formulas..

I'm left with two days to exam and I'm worried that how I should go about. I didn't have much time to practice again all those questions I did right, but marked them on Adapt and Manual. I still have to memorize formulas that haven't been in practice such as Greek like Thetha. I've done 17 exams and I think it should be enough.

I'm only at an EL of 5.3, but I'm not sitting until the 20th. I'm feeling okay right now. I have a MUCH better grasp of everything than the last time I took it. And I feel like I still have enough time to practice the tougher problems.

Can't get past the 6.5 hurdle on Adapt, but I'm comfortably passing level 5s. Some questions on adapt are just worded really weirdly and honestly I get lost so much on the whole cash flow vs value idea.
Gonna start quizzes tomorrow. Have to say it's weird that all the sections I thought would be easy while learning the material actually ended up harder, and vice versa. Hoping for tons of interest rate models and black scholes on the actual exam..

Number of stocks to replicate
One thing that has confused me lately is "calculate the number of shares to replicate this option." I'm good at the formulas and know how to calculate delta or the number of shares to deltahedge. But sometimes the question is implying to give the answer for delta, and sometimes the question is implying to give the opposite sign. Does anybody have a tip for which one to give? Thanks.
