Been doing 9 during these couple weeks. Not sure if itís possible since thereís tons of material in 9 (and 7). I doubled up 6&8, granted 8 is short, but the afternoon after taking 6 and preping for 8 felt like literal sickness and I failed 8.

I would just do it. It's completely possible, but you'd have to be prepared to spend pretty much all your time studying and doing absolutely nothing else. You seemed like you knew the stuff for 7 really well this sitting, so I'm sure you'll be fine for next time on that.

Does anyone know how that guy did that was posting all over LinkedIn that he was going to try 7&9 in the same sitting again? What was the result this time? (just curious). I know it would be near impossible for me, but that's just me.
