To piggy back on Seth’s post, I have a similar study habit, except for the best part of his posts “Being the Teacher” which I think is a brilliant idea! And I am stealing this one when I start studying for the remaining sections.
Here is how I approached AUD: My software throws random questions from every category. I answered them to the best of my ability. For every question I miss and/or had no clue what the question is asking for, I would write out definition/answer on my purple notebook. After a few days, I figured I’d save some time and few trees by typing instead of writing. So I started typing my notes on the MS word and named it Note1.doc. There were 37 pages in Note1.doc. When I was through answering each question at least once, I printed out my note and read/reviewed it thoroughly before attempting the questions again.
The purple Notebook.
My chances of missing the questions the second time around was much higher than (don’t laugh) the sun shining in MA. So, when I miss the questions this time, I would type it out in Note2.doc which contained 17 pages. Not bad! Then I read/reviewed Note 2, before attempting to answer the troubled questions. (Question missed more than once).
Next, were simulations. I did two simulations per day coupled with as many multiple choice questions as I could fit in, everyday, until two days before the test. I took a day before the test off from studying.
This was my methodology for AUD. While BEC has its own story. I will write about it in a separate post, when I get back from my guilty pleasure vacation.
Happy 4th of July.
