    Congrats, Mike! I'll admit when I first saw you asking how quickly you can pass the exams, I thought you were setting yourself up for failure...glad you proved me wrong and had such success!

    I agree with all your points - PDD was very relevant to what I do every day, and your study material aligned with what I studied, for the most part. 

    Momentum is also key - I took off 2 weeks (1 not by choice - got the flu) after passing PPD/PDD before I started studying for PA, and I had a hard time getting back in the habit. Not going to take off time before studying for the last three. 

     

    Enjoy your new freedom from the AXP/ARE, upcoming kiddo, and upcoming new title!

    Yes, congrats!!!  The good news is that you now have solid experience in preparing for something but not truly knowing what to expect until you actually do it - that will apply to parenting as well :). 

    Glad that you were able to get this done ahead of the little one, enjoy the time off in between ARE and baby.  Was a little worried when you first posted here asking about testing rescheduling in case the baby came early.  I had visions of you walking out of your exam only to find 2000 missed calls on your cell phone that was permanently sealed in your locker from your wife saying "where the hell are you??????????"  Would have made for a good story I suppose! 

    All the best!

    Haha, believe me, that scenario definitely ran through my head about a dozen different ways! Thankfully I am happy to say I lucked out and the baby stayed put for the moment. This is baby #2, so I should be (hopefully) well prepared for the lack of sleep forthcoming!

    Right there with you sir, I've got two at home, 2 year old and almost 4.  I know the feeling of having to do this process and handle kids at the same time.  Congrats again!
