|I passed level I last year, but i remember that it was Thanksgiving when i finally felt like time was running short. Now is about the time when you start thinking, "Maybe i should have studied instead of going to the movies, or on vacation, or drinking with your friends"...Now is the time you think, maybe i shouldn't have left studying to the last minute.|
|I've been feeling a race against time since January! And I haven't gone to the movies, or on vacation or drinking. Oh, I've taken my breaks here and there (would have gone insane otherwise, I think), but they were usually in the form of some chore (cut the grass, dinner and bath for kids, small home repair, occassional workout). These last 2 weeks are a bit hectic since I'm travelling twice (Vegas and NY) for work. My clients who I'm meeting in Vegas think I'm nuts for bringing study materials for a 3-day golf weekend. I told them it ain't by choice. I've been pounding away at this thing for 5 months and I simply refuse to let anything slip at this point -- especially since I'm on try #3 for Level 2. Nervous? Not really. I feel fairly well prepared. Pressure? Definitely feeling some. The hardest part, I think, is getting into "the zone" and staying there for an extended period of time. I've committed the month of May to getting into that final pre-game mindset and brushing up on the trouble spots while trying to keep the stuff that comes easier fresh in my mind.
Needless to say, I'm sure we'll all be glad when June 1/2 rolls around and hopefully VERY glad when late July or mid August rolls around.
