My plan to wait until my trending score reached a certain point before I scheduled the exam has not been working out.
I found that without the exam date set, I have very little drive to study. I made plans to study everyday, but most days I found myself avoiding my books.
Any excuse would do, and over the summer I think I have used every one in the book (cleaning, playing with kids, Facebook,anything…)
I even went so far as to evaluate my study methods and even debated finding a new study system with videos. It became a question of: Would I use the videos and did I even need them?
Needless to say, I finally decided to not wait for my trending score and I now have a set date for FAR. I told my husband this date is set in stone and I am not allowed to move it. Studying is back on in my household, primarily driven by the trial of the videos.
Although it is still not easy being away from my kids, I know if I buckle down I can get this exam passed.
