I really need to get going on this, but I'm on vacation next week and feel like I've already completely checked out. I might need to just go have a good time and come back recharged.

working my way through the Mahler guide. retention hasn't been great so far lol. gonna take me a few weeks to really get back in to the exam grind, I think.

test doesn't seem too difficult conceptually, though, at least from what I've covered so far.

I'm using his guide too. What's your study plan look like if you don't mind to share? Like how fast are you planning to go over the first round?

I'm trying to keep up a pace of at least 50 pages a day, more if I'm feeling up to it; that should take me to the end of the guide by the end of February. then go straight into practice exams/Adapt (is Adapt good for S? anyone know?) and review sections of the guide as needed.
