I had recently started preparing for my Level 1 and got into a nice preliminary routine and pace. However, it turns out that I cannot take the exam in June due as something has come up. This puts me in a conundrum. As December 2014 is the earliest I can take Level 1, should I back of from my studies now or try to stick to a slower pace for a few months and try to pace myself for the next 12 months? I haven’t heard anyone suggesting a 12 month study plan, so I am skeptical of doing that but I do not want to ruin the good trot I have gotten myself into.
Also, this might seem to be a little pompous but its playing on my mind for a few days now; should I start with Level 1 as well as Level 2 (basics only) and complete whatever I can till about July-Aug and then begin the Level 1 prep in full swing for Dec ’14?
