Kinda in the same boat! I find I just want to browse the forum and read articles. Thinking about just picking a random part of ethics and reading it really throroughly. Maybe I can squeeze out an add’l question. I don’t know though… Feel like we know or we don’t at this point.
Hey man, same here. Except my mind is well rested because I don’t stress myself out over stuff that isn’t life threatening!
What I’m doing is making sure I have as much of the FRA and some Econ stuff crammed in my short term memory as possible. The other stuff I actually tried to learn for long term retention, but some of the FRA Pension Rules and Econ stuff just has to be crammed. So I’m writing/rewriting formulas and understanding the concepts behind them. And just going through CFAI EOCs and taking vignettes again, to make sure I haven’t overlooked anything.
I still think chances are I may be studying for this level again next year. But I think my chances have decreased significantly this past week as I’ve reached my “peak”
Just relax. Being well rested and not exhausted is very important IMO
I hear you, im on “vacation” and I just spent the past five days (including today) doing every single question from the six Schweser tests and 2012 and 2013 mocks, topic-by-topic. Today I’m finishing up with FRA and I’m done. At the end of these marathon days, I find myself blankly staring an AWFUL lot!
Tomorrow I’m getting up really early (so that I might be really tired tomorrow night) and lightly reading through the answer keys for the 2012 and 2013 mocks.
Not a bad exercise… just made an excel template with five different sections…
Op Lease/capital lease lessee
op lease/finance lease lessor
capitalizing vs expensing
I made the side column each of the components, so EBIT, NI early, COGS, etc… whatever is relevant and just went through and put higher or lower (except curr. translation - put avg, current, etc…). Reading something in your notes is one thing. Forcing yourself to make a call one way or the other really makes sure you know it.
You aren’t alone. I seem to have forgotten a lot of stuff that was easy for me a couple weeks ago on the equity valuation front and am sort of bummed. Hope to do a refresher on the major topics to see if things will click.
I took this morning off and rode my bike 40 miles and it seemed to clear my head and help my mood a little after studying about 20hrs the past 2 days. I felt defeated yesterday but at the end of the day I’m not that desperate to pass this year. Not the end of the world if I have to come back next year. I have a job, wife and kids. It is just a test.
