Just submited EOM1 and so far it wasn't that bad. Pretty sure I can do two a week.

Would you say reading all the slides prior to attempting the EOM assessment is crucial?

I have to say that by no means you need to read all of it. You get tested at the end and you need to get 80% but the EOM refers to the slides for sure, only a small portion of it though.

oh, that's different. you didn't need to get any specific percent right on the end of module test before this change, which didn't really make a whole lot of sense to me.

Is it worth reading through AO about the modules/EMAs from the prior FAP version? Or are these different enough that it wouldn't be very helpful?

I would definitely not bother. they got rid of the old end of module exercises and replaced them with mini IA's, so if anything it would be similar to the old IA which people weren't allowed to talk about. most of the old threads were about the old end of module exercises which are gone, not really the readings.

will let someone in the know weigh-in though.

would you say 8-10 hours is sufficient for EOM1?
