Definitely recommend going over the whole syllabus again. I would still save memorization for closer to the end of the process (final weeks). I think it's well worth using the time you have now to go over the whole syllabus again.

Eddie, I am curious what your thoughts are on the LFV-U exam doubling up on pretty much the exact same topic on Question 6 and Question 9? I thought this was odd with so many GAAP options on the syllabus. I didn't review this topic at lunch after the morning session because I thought there was no chance they would test it again! Is this a common occurrence?

Not terribly common but things like that definitely can happen. Or maybe they're hitting the GAAP book extra hard with FASB's targeted changes looming ever closer?
