    Hi everyone,
    I am currently working thru the Gleim MCQs for the Part 2 of the exam. As most of you know, this part of the exam involves quite a few problems that require solving mostly calculations. My strategy at first was to go thru and solve each of the MCQ per unit so that I can first expose myself with the material. So far, I am finding that this strategy is taking too much of my time and may not be the most efficient. If you don't mind sharing how you went about studying for this section, I would really appreciate your input.
    Thank you for your help!

    Hi,

    I used HOCK. Wrote my exam in Oct waiting for results.... I took 2 months to internalize the material. Just studied and highlighted the text I thought was important. Did not do a sing MCQ during this time. Finished the whole syllabus in 2 months. Then in the 3rd month, I would read only the highlighted text in each section (this would take just 2-3 hours) and answer all practice MCQs of the section I read. Repeat for all 6 sections. Took me 20-22 straight days. Then in the last 7-8 days I practiced essays and took 2 practice tests. I did feel good about the exam. Essays did open. Fingers crossed.
