Many have probably asked this questions or maybe no one has but I'm struggling in terms of how much time I spend time studying. I did not pass the PcM due to running out of time and PjM due to lack of knowledge in 3 of the 2 sections. I'm not concerned about the study material but i'm concerned about how much time i'm taking to study the material. It took me 6 months to take the PcM due to covid cancelling 3 attempts of scheduled exams and 3 months to study the PjM. I am testing a different method and scheduled the rest of my exams from PA to CE 1 month apart till the end of the year. I don't mind if I fail. I just want to get through and take each section to understand the contents and what I really need to study for. Of course, Im going to work hard and do my best to study but with all of the study material, does anyone have suggestions on how long I should spend on each one? For example, I'm a slow reader and a visual learner so it takes me longer to read anything compared to others. I have read that people took one exam a week or 1 exam a month and longer.
With a full time job, how do people find the time to read all of the material and take the practice exams? If it takes me 3 days (4-6 hours a day) to read just the ballast book, is that taking too long? I heard some people scan through the readings, what else do you do once you're done with that? do you reread the material or just take a bunch of exams?
This is a lot but I just want to use my time wisely and intelligently and would love to pass at least one exam.
