Studying is going slower than I thought, but at least Im still at it. I am on track with the study schedule that Rogers suggested, but after I cover each section, then I go back and review all that I have covered for a couple of hours and that really seems to be helping.
MCQs seem to be getting easier the more that I review them. I am using MCQs from three sources and see a whole lot of the exact same topics, just worded a little differently.
This is good since I am able to get a different perspective on these topics and am able to see where I need to focus my learning. This also keeps me from memorizing the answers and giving myself a false sense of success.
I think my biggest problem is that as we all get older, learning seems to be harder. I have to keep covering the same topics multiple times to get them to stick in my head. But repetition does seem to be helping.
I am going to take Jeffs NINJA Notes and begin using them for additional reviews. I am using Rogers suggestions and not take so many notes, but I still use 4×6 index cards to put major topics, etc on and this allows me to carry them with me for review.
I also have Wiley Focus Notes on my iPhone and they are also a big help.
If I have even 5 minutes (like in the drive through car wash) I just review something.
