    Brad- I won't be the most experienced person out here to give you advice but I wanted to share that I am in the same boat. Scheduled PcM and PjM for the first two weeks of March. What about you?

    I started out by checking out some free Black Spectacles videos of content and practice questions to get myself familiar with the content, and of course with the NCARB Handbook itself. Then I have started reading the AHPP based on the different annotated indices that have been floating around in this forum, and will begin to listen to the Schiff Hardin lectures while I start contracts next week. Since I typically study at night after work, I usually start out with review videos because that keeps me alert and then I transition to reading (new content) as it could make me sleepy after an hour or two. I try to aim to two do 2-3 topics each week, and keep the last week for practice problems, but then also a day each week to do flashcards/review what I have learnt.

    Hope this is helpful. And I'd love to learn more about what you've been doing. Thanks!

    Melanie-Thanks for the info!  Yes I am getting all the required reading that Motaz mentioned above (thanks by the way)  Trying to get into a system of study.  You are brave taking two exams together right away.  I have the Kaplan 5.0 book that summarizes info good, but the practice exams are not like the ARE.  Need to find some practice exams that are in the format of what is on the actual exam....

    Keep it up!

    Melanie- I am only taking the PcM test first week of March.  Is there an advantage to taking the PjM so close to the PcM?
