    I guess it's just me (with exception to one other poster here - how're you doing?).

    It's going fine. I'm feeling lonely over here, but I understand you're feeling the same way. Best of luck with your exam. How's that coming along?

    Quite well! I'm taking practice tests (when I get the time--I've been so busy with writing this paper for my history class which, though engaging, has kind of hindered my study time of late) and going over old problems. I'm really liking the material, so it's easier to study for it, and yeah, practice tests and old questions are going quite well. All in all, I feel quite prepared . . . I kind of wish it was next week just so I could get it over with, engage in some wishful thinking, and take perhaps a week break before starting preparation for . . . CAS 3 =0

    Wish you the best in Hawaii--it's cold here.

    I misunderstood your post the first time around - I thought you were giving yourself a week or so to prepare for CAS 3. But I realized (albeit as late as I did) that's not what you meant.

    Anyway, best of luck to you. It's getting "cold" here - which means it's dropping into the low 70's. *shrug*

    That's cool (no pun intended).

    What is it, like five days left? Are you good, wat? I would expect nothing less.

    Yeah. My study hours tracker says 4, but it excludes today. I'm worried. A lot more than I was for M. There's a lot of things I only have a mediocre handle on, so I hope those don't get asked too much.

    But we'll see. You guys will definitely hear from me if I make it through. And I expect the same from you - best of luck!

    I think you'll get a 10 like you did on M (not that you ever said you did; I just feel like you did and judging from your score on another forum!).

    I did. I was surprised by that. But I did walk out of Exam M with at least 34 correct (from the proposed pass mark, I think I must've miscounted one, so maybe 35 correct?). I was able to blow through the test and finish my first run through in 2 hours, with about 27 completed.

    The difference b/t Exam M and Course 5, though, is that for Exam M, I distinctly remember telling my advisor a few days before the exam that if I happened to fail Exam M, I'd try Course 5 & Exam M at the same time, because I felt that I couldn't do any more studying for Exam M.

    For Course 5, I feel I could use another month preparing. The amount of information to remember and comprehend is just mind-blowing. But you'll never have to take it. And I wouldn't wish it upon anyone.
