Hi, I will have the whole of May for revision. I am not sure how to go about it. Some say to start with a sample test straight away but I had done Ethics/Quant/Economics in Dec/Jan...I will need to go thro that again definitely before I can think of giving any mock/sample tests...but if I go thro the books again, it might take some times...

I wish to make the best use of May for revising...any helpful tips...Thanks.

I've heard a lot of criticism about people spending to much time on reading and not enough time on the questions. In my personal opinion, the best way to go about it is to do a lot of questions from the areas your deficient in. When you answer a question wrong, instead of moving on, consult the book to refresh on that particular question. If you are going to spend time reviewing a second time in the critical month of May, review the essential materials. Just a though, good luck to you....I am also aiming for a May revision date.

You really should take a practice exam that first week in May. I get what you are saying about feeling like you won't be able to answer any quant questions, I felt the same way a month before the exam in December, but you might surprise yourself.

It is really crucial though to get a feel for exactly where you are at so you can spend that last month efficiently. No need to take a full 6 hour exam, just do a 3 hour session in early May, find your weak points and work to shore them up.

I also found it helpful to do practice exams at 9am Sat morning to replicate test day as closely as possible.

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