Default order of study

Just curious about the following and if anyone can give any feedbacks.
What part of the materials do you find the most difficult on course 4?
Which section do you start with first?

I dont know about what topics are the most difficult but I am using Mahler's guides as my main study material and i am following his recommended study schedule. So far I think it is going well in terms of by ability to get through one of the 15 units each week.

I don't find course 4 as difficult as course 3. And I don't think the order of study matters that much. I think I only need to spend around 150-200 hours to study this time.

i thought some of the applicabilities of credibility were hard...

like discrete Bayesian = easy; continuous bayesian = a little trickey (of course its cause i hate integrals)

continuous Bulhman, not a problem. discrete is another story

of course thats me.

regression was kinda a pain because of the formulas but i guess you guys don't have to worry about that anymore! not for this exam anyway
