I’m going to go through section by section, as it is in the exam. Ethics always gets me off to a good start in terms of time management, allowing me to chill a bit, and I usually score pretty highly on it anyway. Also, after doing enough practice exams I’m now very used to this format and just roll through it… I know what’s coming and know when I’m getting behind the schedule etc.
On exams, I’m getting anything between 90 and 100 on these now but three weeks ago I was getting 80s (raw score). I have spent about 6 hours reviewing each exam. The advice above is good I think - go through the answers you got wrong and understand why. Use the Ebook for quick lookups while you’re reviewing and read relevant material, especially for those tricky FSA ones as you go. I’ve done that so many times now that it’s just hammered into my brain. I have only read the books once but have revisited while checking exams… you find the formulas and concepts just stick after enough repetition and answering questions.
Dumb mistakes are diminishing and partly owing to covering up the answers with my calculator. In the past, if I saw an answer before I had really thought about it, I’d jump in and choose it… dumb mistake! Now I read it carefully, read it again, think about it, come up with an answer and then look for it.
Hope that helps?
