Today was a great day!!! Got some pretty exciting news passed REG with a 76!!
I do wish the score was a bit higher but a pass is a pass and Ill take it my arms wide open!!!! I still cant get rid of that feeling in my stomach the feeling whether its excitement, nerves or relief.
This is my first passing score (second time taking REG; first time 73). Receiving a few close but not quite there scores was incredibly difficult to bounce back from and Im glad I put it behind me and didnt quit.
NOTES AND SIMULATIONS! Constantly rewriting the NINJA Notes and reading my notes out loud helped me understand the concepts a little more every time. Working the simulations first and making those a priority, I believe, really gave me the extra few points I needed to pass.
I dont think I can stress the importance of practicing simulations!! It really does make THAT much of a difference. Also, I want to thank everyone on here with their constant encouragement; its a tremendous confidence booster. Thank you!!
So, whats next?? I dont have another section scheduled but am hoping to get back into the groove of studying once this wedding is over, Ive moved to Portland, and returned from our honeymoon.
Im really contemplating the idea of studying for two sections within the same window. Im not sure which 2 sections to take and how should I study for them?
Do I put 4 hours into one and then 4 hours into the other the same day? Do I alternate days between the two sections? Should I study for one, take the test, and then study for the other? Any suggestions?
