    Would like some studying advice

    I would agree with what others have already posted here, but I'll summarize what was important to me: 1. Prep: Decide when you're going to take it and cancel plans to do anything major between then and now. Sign up for the exam early so you're locked in to a test date. Dedicate yourself to...
