AUD Class 3

169 days remaining
Mood – little bit down
Study Time – 4.0 hours (34.0 total)
Sections Taken/Passed:  none/none

Three classes down, two to go.  This was a long class that covered a ton of information.  It took almost 30 pages to cover 2 letters of one of the mnemonics (painful).  I also missed 3-4 of the 20 in class questions.  The air conditioning is also a bit funky in the room we are in.  I think there is an override that kills the air conditioning about 6:30-7.  The end result is I get to burn up for the last half of the class.  I did find the two people sitting behind me bringing in an entire pizza to eat during the class hilarious.  I wasn't annoyed or anything by it, but found it very amusing.

I also have found a problem with my current study plan.  I need an extra day or two do complete all the tasks I want to complete before next Monday's class.  This means doing an eight hour day on Saturday or Sunday , giving up my day off of study, or changing the laws of physics and space/time.  Personally, I'm hoping for the third option.  By my count I need to re-read section 3 (and 2 if I can manage), answer the MC questions for sections 2 & 3 at least twice more , although I'd prefer three times (160ish and 230 questions in the sections), read AUD-4 & 5 class material (60-70 pages each), do the simulations for 2 & 3.  That list includes 8 items (read 4, read 5, MC 2, MC 3, read 3, MC 2, MC 3, Simulations 2/3).  I can effectively do 2 items per study session, which means I need 4 study sessions while only having 3.  That doesn't include doing the MC questions for 4 once before class like I want to do.  Reading the material before class is very beneficial, so those can't go.  I really don't consider 2-3 times through the MC questions to be enough, so those can't go.  This means not re-reading the section 3 stuff, even though I am a bit weak on it relative to other sections.  I can probably squeeze in just enough to allow me to do the questions twice and read next week's material if I skip lunch the next couple of days.  We'll see how it turns out.
