I just wanna see if there is a consensus here.

Does it always make sense to leave Ethics to the end, by starting from Quant and working your way down the study sessions? Or should we just start with Ethics, as recommended by the institute?

I started with Ethics and kind of regret it. Ethics is pretty easy and light and comparably fun. It would been a good brain-break in the middle of the quant material.

My advice is to read it at the beginning of your study plan, then read it again 1-3 nights before the exam. Reading it twice really helps in my opinion. Between Levels I and II, I've read Ethics 4 times, and will read it a 5th time in a few months. It's one of those topics where the more you read through it the easier it becomes to extract the right answer on the exam, as the correct answer is sometimes subtle.

Also, reading Ethics the night before the exam might help you fall asleep (heh) when nerves and anxiety may be running high.

I was very pleased with your notes and question bank. I especially like the mock exams because it helped to pull everything together.
