Studying and working a full-time job simultaneously is an art. You always have to make adjustments and realize when you need to spend more time studying or reviewing. After my vacation, life has been busy. Between trying to catch up on projects and email, studying took a back seat for a couple of days. Getting through each study unit is an accomplishment and it gets me closer to sitting for the exam.
I recently completed 40% of my Gleim review. I continue to make small goals for myself to keep moving forward. I continue to eliminate distractions by studying away from home as much as possible. I also started keeping track of my study time to keep me accountable. Based on the comments of others, I should spend at least 120 hours studying for the AUD exam.
When I need a break from reading, I’ll use the Gleim software to review questions. Gleim software gives you two options to choose from, a study option or a test option. When I want to learn, I use the study option and pick a specific topic to review. I also like how the Gleim software gives you the choice to review questions you’ve never seen, questions you’ve never answered, questions you’ve never answered correctly, or all of the available questions. This is a great opportunity to focus on weak areas. The interface is very user friendly and it’s easy to understand my performance from reviewing reports. Using the software reassures me that, if I study everything, there will be no surprises on exam day. I will continue using to Gleim test prep software up until I sit for the exam.
Keep studying and studying and studying!
