The End is Nigh!

1 days remaining (adjusted to final test date - saved 9 days over October 2009 estimate)
Mood - Getting Nervous
Study Time – 0.5 hours (403.0 total - FAR: 122.5 - BEC: 74.5 - REG: 118.0 - AUD: 89.5)
Scores:  AUD-94, REG-97, BEC-93

I looked at the ratios tonight.  None of them are particularly hard.  I know the main ones from previous classes.  If I get one of the really odd ones I'll just go with what I think and not worry too much about it.  I'm as ready as I'm going to be.  Hopefully I don't keep myself up all night or keep waking up dreaming about the test like I've done on other sections.  

My test is scheduled for noon tomorrow.  Like in previous sections, I plan on showing up around 10 (why won't they just let you schedule to start at 10 already) and should be allowed to start then.  If for some reason they can't I'll have some time to review my notes and the book and such.  I should be done around 3pm tomorrow.  

I'm sure I'll feel horrid after the exam and be somewhat negative (same as other sections).  I'll unwind in a day or two and can hopefully have my life back.  It is hard to believe that it has been less than 6 months since this whole thing started.  It feels like two years.  I've put in the effort and should be just fine.  If I can convince my stomach of that so it settles down though it would be better.


  1. Dale - Best of luck tomorrow!

    Can you please leave this website up for a year or so? I would like to continue referencing it while trying to mimic your schedule. I just need to get off my rump and get started!

    You give us all a lot of hope. Thank you.

  2. The site isn't going anywhere. I've had the dalesines.com domain name for years and will have it for years to come. There is no reason why I'd want or need to take it down.

  3. Best of luck to you tomorrow! This blog has been an inspiration for me to continue studying on days when I just don't feel like doing it.

  4. Dumb question for you, what do you WEAR when taking the exam?

  5. oh, and do you pay for a subscription to Club 75? Is it worth it @ $20 per month?

  6. I just wear jeans and a polo (I'm more comfy in a polo than a t-shirt). Anything to be comfy in. I have burned up and froze to death in the testing center (both in the same test once). The temperature really gets cold when there are few or no others in the room and toasty when full.

    I have done the Club 75 thing for a couple of months. It is worth a single month for the notes at a minimum and on an ongoing basis if you like the forum he has there better than the one on another71.com.
