That's the plan

Hoping for Hawaii, but also just want to try and crank them out and be done. I'm fortunate that I passed 8 last fall, so I have a year to prepare; but even with that, I'm going to start studying next week. Not leaving anything up to chance.

This. Brehm was such a joke on this year's exam compared to previous years. I had like an hour left to do the last 10 problems. Pretty sure the Brehm problems took my 25 minutes total.

The standalone brehm questions were easy, but the ones embedded in IQ were kinda annoying

I have 8 done and got two 5's on 7. So I'm going to double up 7+9 since I have 10 months to prepare. I'm a little nervous about it, but for both of my 5's on 7 I didn't feel like I needed more time to study, I felt like I needed another try and a bit more luck. So I'm hoping I can just crank out the old 7 flashcards and put my actual focus on 9.
