I'm working through a 2nd pass at reserving. I'm trying to memorize all the formulas for calendar year effects for the appendix that's frequently tested

I've spent the last 4 weeks just reading through the TIA manual very carefully at a leisurely pace and flipping through flashcards. I'm gonna be finishing up the Brehm section today, or maybe just Monday if I don't feel like studying this weekend. After that I'm gonna loop back around to Brosius and go through 3 or so problems in each section to see where I'm at. Also I definitely won't be doing more than around 30 minutes a day since I'm so far ahead.

I've been working with this new overnight face mask twice a week and I think it's really helping out my skin.

if you already took studies days you get them back for the October sitting, unlucky for those who were saving them all for closer to the exam, lucky for those who already took some. I got over a week extra

We're just getting another 120 for the fall sitting as if it was a new sitting. Kinda nice for me since I had already used 60+ at work for this exam.

I'm back to doing problems now. Like I said earlier I'm going to knock out around 30 minutes of problems every weekday for a while and see where that gets me. I did 3 Brosius problems this morning and crushed them, so you could say I'm basically ready now.
