    I am studying with Gleim and Ninja. I read a chapter while watching the videos and do all MCQ available for that chapter on Gleim in a study mode. Then I take couple of quizzes of 20 MCQs and do about 10 SIM questions per chapter until Gleim tells me I am ready to go to the next chapter. Once I am done with a chapter or a topic on Gleim, I use Ninja for some additional MCQs and do some comprehensive MCQs for all the chapters covered so far.

    On weekends, I practice SIMs and do comprehensive MCQs for the chapters I've studied. I put in about 35-40 hours a week of studying.

    Should I do every single MCQs available on Gleim and Ninja? Should I focus more on SIMs? Anything else I can do to make sure I am ready for the test? I have scheduled on April 8th.

    I think if you do all of the MCQs that Gleim offers you will be more than covered.
    The comprehensive review is crucial for FAR.
    It sounds like you have a very strong strategy. Just don't burn yourself out.
    I've not sure how long you've been studying but you're still 6 weeks out.
    You'll put in about as many hours in the next 6 weeks as I did for FAR in total, and I put in too many hours.
