    Hi Dorimar, 

    If you don't mind me asking, what are your study resources? I only ask because while you might have the "right" resources it matters how you use them. Everyone's study habits are different, but I think it is important to understand how you learn best. Personally I can't remember anything I hear, so while other people can listen to Schiff Hardin lectures on their commutes the only way I got anything out of them was sitting down at a computer for 3 hours and listening to the audio while taking notes on the contracts and going through his powerpoints. So if you feel like you're not understanding information from AHPP, try watching youtube videos on topics you're struggling in. You might need to take more thorough notes or do more worksheets or practice problems. How many resources someone needs to pass these tests really varies. 

    In terms of study time, it best if you can get into a rhythm and realize when you're most productive. I was often too tired to study more than an hour after work, so I got into the habit of studying for 30-45 mins in the morning and on my lunch break. I usually spend a solid 4-6 weeks studying for each test.

    If you feel like you need to study with other people, you could try the YA Bootcamp, mentoring, or even just the Academy is helpful. If you have a supportive office, you can also try talking with your coworkers or management about questions you have.
