Thanks for this advice!!
Yeah, I got engaged and planned a wedding in those first two attempts, so things were a bit chaotic for sure. A parent has also recently passed, which makes me a bit hesitant to strike while the iron is hot, but I think if I can focus...I put in a LOT of time the previous two attempts, but I was distracted by life events, so maybe I need to shorten the time studying (I was studying in 5-8 hour blocks) and make sure that the time i do spend is HIGH QUALITY (i.e., no distractions). I used School of PE, but found their water resources depth (Civil) not super helpful. I am going to try them again as a refresher, only if the professor for the depth section is of a higher caliber.
