Default Studying Tips for Exam P

So I'm starting to study for exam P and I honestly forgot how I started studying for FM.

Is it smart to get a general idea of every chapter (so go over 10-15 problems per chapter and somewhat get an idea on how to do them), then start taking practice exams? I would use ADAPT and just start at EL 1 and then I'd use the solution videos to help understand the problems even more.

I work with many different kinds of students. Some prefer to do it that way because they learn best by doing lots of practice questions. Some like to make sure they understand all the details of the chapter before they move onto questions.

I think it's best to go through the manual once fully (doing some questions along the way), then do review of your weaker areas and then get into lots of questions.

You can see a sample schedule for Exam P here.
