Today, I woke up at 5:30am; not my normal wake up time, but I will try to keep that going. I wrote up my thoughts on how to prepare for Auditing and Attestation, just in case my fears come to pass, and I have to retake it. For some reason, as I was going over my observations and trying to remember the questions I got and how I thought about them during the exam and what I thought were my weak areas, I felt a little bit of hope! Anyway, I made my notes, and then I proceeded to download the GLEIM testprep software for Regulation (which I purchased last night, but the computer/internet was acting up). I think at some point I looked up a few things that I was not sure about – just to know. I didn’t quite go through it. I told myself it was just a waste of time. We will know in due time. I read a few things on the internet – not school related. I did a few questions in study mode. I don’t think I will be using my personal computer for this, so I will install the software on my work computer because it is always with me and I can also have everything in one place, instead of having study units, or parts thereof, spread between the two computers… so it was a half-hearted effort. I decided to read the book or some other notes before doing the Testprep MCQs. The tentative plan will be: to study book from 5:30am to 6:30am, and at lunch from 12pm to 1pm, and then work on the MCQs at night for about 2 hours or so.
It is now 7:12am, I have to get ready for work. I will try to post my progress, thoughts and reflections every day.
It is a wonderful life.
