Me too. I think it will be a good 6 months effort with work and family.

I am planning to start by January after I finish my VEE. Hoping to finish ASM manual by April (4 months) and then two solid months of ADAPT exams.

Got one shot at it in June before the exam changes.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Which VEE are you studying for?

It might be wise for me to do the same thing. I have corporate finance left.

Nvm 18th edition is reasonably priced
How much time do you plan on studying? I was going to start in January but saw this thread appearing already..

I'm gonna join yall. Initially was gonna take it in Feb, but got too lazy. The ASM manual seemed expensive imo, so I bought the mahler one. I kinda gave up for 3 months on studying for the exam after seeing that its 5000 pages.
