    considering I scheduled my exam for 18 weeks from now, I will hopefully have enough time! Thank you for sharing your experience.

    I am scheduled to take PcM next week. I've been studying some of the same resources you mentioned. Thank you for sharing your experience. Good luck on your remaining exams!

    Hi Christopher!

    I'd like to know when you say you put "about 4 months of solid studying". How many hours per week? :)  Just to have an idea... Thank you!

    Hi Paula,


    I would say about an average of 20 hours a week. Sometimes work and life gets in the way and you'll do less, and sometimes you find a groove and can go through a lot of the material at once

    This is a great resource to have for studying, and is frequently referenced here on the forums

    Great attitude Christopher Drinan~

    I understand you 100% in all of this post.  So, I have a question: I have already purchased most all materials referenced, with exception to Ballast; because Ballast wasn't as helpful to me during the 4.0.  However, my mind is telling me to purchase this book, whether or not I take extra courses offered by PPI2PASS.

    I am scheduled for CE late July, and am 95% sure on this topic; as I have been studying for PcM & PjM for several months now in tandem. Do you recommend me purchasing the entire Ballast Bundle for $280.00?  Your thoughts at this stage would be gratefully appreciated.  Thank you, and congrats to you!  Keep pushing forward never backward.

    PS. FYI - Kevin's link from above does not work, at least not from my Google browser.

    Hi Paul,

    I would recommend the Ballast book and practice exam overall. I think this study guide's weakest section may be Practice Management but I found it helpful for all other sections. Same goes for the study guide as well. It does look like Kevin's link is dead, I tried searching for some other posts referencing it but it is dead on those as well. I would try reaching out to Kevin directly if possible, as his markup was quite helpful

    CHINONSO IKE This link should be helpful. I think this has the mp3 files for the lectures as well as a PDF of the lecture slides. If not, let me know your email and I can send you all files.

    Hey Christopher Drinan ~

    Many props and thanks for your reply Chris, and to everyone for this forum. In my humblest beliefs (skate hard or skate home), I have mastered the Schiff Lectures on CD's for now, and am no longer interested in Kevin's notes as I probably have already downloaded them and studied them as well / schwew, sometimes hard to remember what has been reviewed/study/mastered; as I use the word "master" loosely.

    FYI - I did 24 hours of research, and my "last" set of bundled works to purchase for the 5.0 is ArchExamPrep (https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?&i=Webinar05-03&cl=213701&c=cart&ejc=2&custom=card).  They gave me a U.S. Veteran's discount, and certainly have convinced me that they offer exactly what I currently seek to finish; AND, if I pass all 6-in-8-months, they have incentivized me with a full refund.  Wish me luck!  Good luck to you as well Chris, stay in touch...YOU GOT THIS!!!
