To be fair, I didn't study nearly enough for 8 to even think I had a chance at passing, but I did see all the material. I hope I still think 7 is harder than 8 come September (and hope 7 is behind me at that time!)

If you are 200 hrs in, what stage are you in your study plans? Are you moving onto past exams and stuff soon? I'm still stuck in my second pass. still doing Mack 94

Yes. I'm on second pass. First pass took about 140 hours and consisted of reading source material (not Mack'94, though) , study guides (CF/RF), watching study guide videos, some notes and a few problems along the way (just getting familiar with everything).

Second pass now and I'm on Verrall and Shapland this week. Second pass is taking some notes, but mainly trying to work problems and jumping back and ahead to keep other material fresh.

Last two or three weeks, the plan will be to do nothing but problems and take practice exams, and figure out exam day strategy

The only pass that matters is the one the CAS stamps on your grade slip in June
