I think memorizing formulas for this exam is definitely key. Personnaly, I created formula sheets for each text and I just copy them on a daily basis.

This reminds me of C in that if you know the formula and how to apply it, you should be fine.

same. I'm making flashcards on my 2nd pass through the material (hoping to finish this pass by the end of March) and then I'll drill the flashcards every day for about an hour and do problems for another hour or 2, and hope thats enough.

when writing your flashcards/formulas, do you use your own notation or follow the ones in the papers?

like mack and venter have different notations for the same things. same with benktander and the other cred dudes

I try to write it so that I understand it. A lot of times this is not using the notation in the paper, or, if I do use that notation, I'll also write the formula in words so that if I forget as I'm going through it's easily understandable.

When the notation is incoherent I use words.

How would you segment the syllabus readings into distinct sections?

Like I'd put Mack 2000, Brosius, Hurlimann, Patrik into one grouping as the classical credibility methods.

Would you put Mack 94, Venter, and Clark into its own grouping too?

Essentially the purpose of my question is, if I want to skip around the order prescribed by the study manuals like CF, RF, and TIA, where can I jump around to that doesn't have prerequisites.
