Agree with the other Candidates. I thought I could skim 8 and 9. Score came back and I was stronger than all other candidates with the exception 8 and 9. Result: 71.
I would pound through multiple choice. Assuming you've already read the book once, here's what I do.
I basically had a week to study for all my exams (I have a 12 month busy season). I had all the reading and lectures done but did maybe 100 MCQ's. I printed out the multiple choice, didn't worry about how many I was getting right, and just tried to make as many new "fact nuggets" as I can by highlighting stuff on the questions and writing notes while skimming back through the book when I needed to. If you're having trouble with something, don't hesitate to ask Becker. They will usually have a response within 24 hours if you don't ask over the weekend. 8 and 9 may not be heavily tested but you have to know a great deal to ace the 5 - 10 MCQ's + simulation they might ask you on the exam.
If it all skip the lectures for 8 and 9 but do the reading and MCQ's. My opinion, the lectures are largely useless for most of the sections as long as your disciplined enough to do the reading yourself. Also, there were a few changes to the becker material for 2011 and 2012. Check the site.
I'll be spending the last day or two organizing my fact nuggets and occasionally doing some wiley questions in my problem areas.
