A Little Fall Cleaning + Making BEC Progress

Hello NINJAs,

It has been a few weeks since my last post. I apologize for my absence. Since my last post, things have been a little crazy around the house.

It turns out that fall in southern California has been a good time to do some spring cleaning. I think I have totally cleaned behind/under every piece of furniture in my entire house. But, don't worry, I still am taking time every week to study.

With regard to studying, I have been making progress. I finally finished covering economics, and have moved on to risk management and capital budgeting. I have been spending a lot of time reviewing the material in the Wiley Books, taking notes and answering questions.

I have found that the questions in the Wiley book are trickier than in the online test bank. When I miss a question I have been looking at the reason my selection was wrong, and why the correct answer was correct. I have found that for me, a key to remembering all the concepts is repetition, repetition, repetition.

I don't know if I am feeling apathy, or if I am so focused on pushing through this material that nothing else seems important to me. I really want to have another exam under my belt. I know that every success will lead to more motivation.

So, with success in mind, I will get back to studying, catch you next week!
