study plan

its my first time taking lv3 and i have many hard-working, intelligent friends that passed lv1 and 2 on their first tries but failed lv3. i really want to pass it on the first time, im sure i wont be this motivated to study again ever. anyways, im using the cfa books and plan to stick to it because i find it more interesting. my plan is to leave 2 months for review 1. i will use the first month working on the practice problems in the cfa books 2. the second month taking practice tests on the Schweser Q bank. what do you guys think? ps how do i study for ethics for lv3??
