Mood - Tired
Study Time – 4.0 hours (362.0 total - FAR: 82.0 - BEC: 74.5 - REG: 118.0 - AUD: 89.5)
Scores: AUD-94, REG-97, BEC-93
Well, I made it through the FAR-8 questions. I felt great about the material and did ok on the questions. I scored 81% on the questions and 80% on the supplementals (yes, I got through all 123 of the darn things). The supplemental questions were very painful and annoying. They were very calculation-intensive and I don't expect I'd see many questions like that on the actual exam (thankfully). Overall I am happy with the results. If it had been any other section I would have expected 7-10% more. I think I gave away about 4-5% in stupid RTCDQ issues.
I feel guilty about this "good enough to pass" mentality I seem to be developing. On one hand it is an excuse for why I'm not doing as well as I have in other sections. On the other hand, this section is painfully long and has a ton of material. I would tend towards the excuse explanation, but I've actually managed to stay pretty dedicated to this hellish test over the past 5.5 months so far (gah, I hate the word far). If I had to take the test tomorrow I think I'd be in the mid-60's. That isn't a horrible place to be with two weeks to go. I've probably got another 40-50 hours of study time to go for this section. After Thursday's pass through the FAR-9 questions I'll be on my own to pull the whole thing together. All the "I'll nail that part down later" items are getting ready to hit me with the "its time to actually learn this part" side of the coin. Can I just leave my body for the next two weeks and come back when it is all over?
