I've dialed my studying way back, but am still hoping to do one or two hours a day (some of that is "work" study time) with nothing on the weekends. I've already gotten through my first pass of the material, so at this point it's all about memorization and "connecting the dots". I think if I dial back too much, it will be hard to pick that momentum back up.

Assuming the exam will be held in June, I don't want to give myself any excuses for failing. With that said, I'm assuming the pass ratio will be lower this sitting.

I'm better now. Needed to let it marinate for a while, and Crystal Clear helps.
