Offering my advice for what itís worth. Reading source is a waste of time as always. Read the manual once and start drilling problems. If youíre not practicing problems, youíre wasting your time

I would say it depends on the source, and depends on your learning style. I personally find it very hard to practice problems without sufficient familiarity with the "color" of material. Study guides are essential, but sometimes they compress things down too much.

I think GLM needs to be read for sure.

I completely agree. The GLM paper for this exam is definitely worth reading.
