Bad Study Night

7 days remaining (adjusted to final test date - saved 9 days over October 2009 estimate)
Mood - Annoyed
Study Time – 2.5 hours (388.0 total - FAR: 108.0 - BEC: 74.5 - REG: 118.0 - AUD: 89.5)
Scores:  AUD-94, REG-97, BEC-93

It took me 4 hours to get in 2.5 of actual study time.  I could not get focused at the start or even throughout my review portion.  Ultimately I did not have time to do a full progress test (that would have taken 2 hours or so to get through).  Instead I did the supplemental questions for FAR-7 since that is the section I reviewed tonight and I had not done them before.  I scored 75% on the 52 supplemental questions.  I gave away 5% to very minor things that I would not miss again.  I gave away another 5% on ratio questions that I missed.  I did not even look at the ratios in the book yet (planning on doing that Monday or maybe even Tuesday).  Overall I think I am in the low-80s on the actual material.  While it isn't as good as I'd like, it isn't bad and is consistent with what I've done on the harder materials.  

Just as a reference, I got 79% on the main FAR-7 questions my first time through, which was one of my lowest scores for FAR questions.  I've been doing about 2-7% less on the supplemental questions than the main questions, so that fits in with my normal performance as well.

I almost checked today to see if I could move my test up to Friday.  I really just need to review the simulations in the Becker software and review ratios and I could be ready.  The other days are really for the 2 practice final exams.  While they would be helpful I think I could get by without them.  The thought of not having to study this weekend at all was very appealing.  It was a nice day dream today.  In the end, there is no point in taking a short-cut this close to the end.  I will miss some some really stupid things in the practice final exams that I'll learn from and I will see at least some of those stupid mistakes on the actual exam.  But still, a weekend without studying.........
