    Has anyone here tried studying for Ninja or any supplementary course and only done about 4-5 hours on a weekly basis? Then on the final 2 weeks before the exam you go all out and do this supplement and do more hours? Wondering if anyone has tried this out and if it works. This is of course assuming you do the Principal course at a good amount of hours like 20 or 25.



    ive Not on purpose done light study for three weeks then three weeks of more intense study. Idk why I do it to myself, it stresses me out and I’m miserable every time. I think half the exams I’ve taken have ended up like that. Usually doing a mix of MCQs and review courses for the first few weeks…I think oh shoot I’m far benhind and then straight test bank and notes the last three studying closer to 25-30 hours per week.

    I'm going to be the person who says "I finished even though..." not the person who says "I didn't finish because..."

    B - 77, 76

    A - 57, 64, 72, 76!

    R - 78 (lost credit 5/18)

    F - 54, 73, 71, 64, 69, 76!


    Probably best to use your primary for 20-25 hours a week and use the extra 4-5 to do cumulative MCQs one day a week to keep it all fresh.
    Once you have exhausted your primary course, by watching all the lectures and doing all the MCQs they offer, then jump to your supplemental to hammer out more/different MCQs.

    @raulb, Yes I have procrastinated calling it study and have shot myself in the foot only to regret it. I am cautious this round. I am doing the 30 hours a week with the ninja course. And should I fall behind this time, I will do so many mcq's until I literally bleed and rewrite notes so many times until I can write/recite them without looking or listening. So far I am on track. Yay!! The best thing to do is have a study plan and stick to it. Cramming at the end is NO fun.
