Hello all. Another cruddy week studying for BEC has passed. Im glad I decided to push back the exam a bit, as I was scheduled to take it this coming Friday and definitely wouldnt have been well-prepared. I feel like Im stuck in a rut the last few weeks, reading and re-reading my highlighted notes on Corporate Governance and Operations Management (skimming was the wrong term to use in my update last week).
I re-worked all the MCQs in Chapter 1 this week, but Im not scoring as high as Id like. I have also started re-reading Economics, but havent started re working the MCQs yet. Ill work on that this coming week, as well as the Financial Mgmt chapter. I logged 21 ¼ study hours this past week, but will have to ramp that up over the next 3 weeks.
This coming week is going to be especially difficult, because its my daughters 4th birthday on Saturday and Mothers Day on Sunday (I usually log half my weekly study hours over weekends). We are hosting a Birthday Party on Saturday at one of those childrens party centers, so I dont expect there will be any studying on Saturday.
My children are really starting to notice my absence around the house and it is impacting them, so I am going to try to make the whole day Saturday very special for my older daughter. Ive definitely been feeling a ton of guilt lately, so that certainly hasnt helped me stay focused, but I have to remain diligent these last 19 days until the BEC exam.
Kudos to all of you parents, studying for this exam and continued strength to your spouse or whoever helps you through it. I havent decided what Im going to pull out of my sleeve for Mothers Day yet, but Im going to try to make my wife feel like a Queen, because she certainly deserves it.
She knows the studying has been slow going, so I expect shell understand that I have to spend a good part of the day studying on Sunday. Ill let you know how it goes next week.
