Do you ever feel as though when your testing date is approaching that your studying habits that you worked so hard to maintain start to go away? I dont know what it is but I am in a serious rut right now. I cant seem to keep the momentum going that I had two weeks ago. I always do so well watching the lectures and taking a ton of notes but when it comes time to doing the multiple choice questions for each module in the Wiley book I freeze up.
I think it is because I become so overwhelmed by how many MCQs there are to do and count the calendar to see how I can get it all done. Also, I obviously have forgotten how to do some of the problems that I learned in the first couple lectures weeks later when I retry them. That always gets me discouraged. Does anyone have any tips on how they stay on track and dont let the ever approaching exam date freak them out?
I have a lot riding on this exam where I have to pass three exams in a matter of five months or I will lose my credit for Audit. Needless to say I have no room for failure. One would think that would be enough to keep themselves motivated! I keep reminding myself of this and then a little spark goes off and I keep moving forward. I guess that is the only thing I can do!
I think I am going to lock myself in a room this Saturday and just study the entire day away. My husband works all day on Saturdays so it is the perfect study day. I try to go to the library because my pups can be pretty distracting sometimes with their cuteness but the library is now on summer hours!
That being said that is my game plan for the weekend. Sunday I plan to spend some of my day with family where it is Fathers Day but I do plan on getting some hours in in the morning.
Well I hope no one else is feeling the pressure of their exam coming up and somehow begin panicking and slack on studying! I am going to turn this attitude around and go full force the next couple of weeks.
I think I may be in need of a phone call with Jeff for some serious motivation!
Until next time,
