|I am using textbooks and analystnotes and I just finished study session 14.
At the end of each chapter, I am doing Textbook EOC questions and basic questions, where i usually manage to get 90% or more.
Yesterday I tried to pick some random questions from previous readings and I feel like my retention rate, is very very low (probably around 25%). Are you having the same problem? Do you think that doing exercises and reviewing LOS where i get wrong answers can help?
I will start doing only review exams here and reviewing LOS where i score badly after i finish study session 16. Do you think that 3 months is sufficient amount of time to fill all the gaps?
|I had the same problem to the extent to think this was kind of impossible, but no, this is totally doable and the secret is to practice questions a lot. I suggest to solve review questions and feedback from them (at least 3,000 review questions from analystnotes). The last 2 or 3 days just try to solve questions mentally and check the answer right there. That helps a lot.
|I had the same issue. The first read through is always the slowest as your brain works to comprehend new subjects and formulas. The second time you read the material, its much faster and instead of wasting brain power working to comprehend the information you manage to retain a lot more of it. I read the material for level I 4 times by the way.|
|Working questions, whether individually or as a practice/mock exam, will lock things into your memory. So will writing the information on flash cards. Put in the (active) effort and you'll get there.|

I am happy to say that I passed! Your study notes certainly helped prepare me for what was the most difficult exam I had ever taken.
