I've been writing and writing notes and MCQ tidbits. Yesterday i did Becker AUD chapter 4- the 2 hours lecture and I used up an entire memo pad Not even done with all the lectures and I'm on my 6th memo pad. I hope this all comes together in the end!
I am trying to do the Ninja method for the first time as well. It's so much writing! I lost track of how much paper I've gone through lol. I'm also really nervous about giving up a week of studying questions to rewrite this stuff. The tricks and wording of the questions/answer choices is what seems to get me when answering questions…

I have always studied best by rewriting notes…I am using Becker and in preparation for FAR and BEC I basically re-wrote the entire texts on my first pass through, and then again in my review. It all does come together for me, and has worked well for both tests as reflected in my scores. I am taking REG on Oct. 3 and my hand is really starting to hurt by this point.
You know- I must say that I feel I'm retaining the information more. I'm using BEKCER and I'm on AUD- Chap 4. There is one lecture that is 2 hours. It took me all of Saturday to go through it (stopping, and writing everything they said and told us to hightlight- I wrote it all down). I felt better when I went through the questions. Still areas to improve upon but writing it down helps. I treated myself to a mani/pedi on Sunday and splurged the extra $5 for a hand massage. I needed it after all the note taking!
