    I plan to re-take level II exam on June 2021, failed two years ago and this time want to make it right. The problem is, I mostly forget level II contents and it feels like I have to study again from the scratch. Thus, I plan to start studying now. What do you think? is it too early? is there anyone here ever studied for more than 6months before exam? is it counterproductive?

    thanks before!

    I would say that you definitely need to put in some extra time, but more than 6 months? There are so many factors that go into your personal study schedule (work, family, kids, other commitments, etc.) that only you can really answer that.

    For me, I have teenagers and a full time job, plus some other commitments so I started a little bit earlier, but it’s up to you. Just get a schedule and try to stick to it.

    Best of luck

    a year may be too early, as you have to be consistent throughout the period to ensure you don’t forget the materials.

    i’ve definitely seen people who started 8/9 months before at a more gradual pace, so that would probably keep you motivated till the end, but would be concerned about burn out if you start any earlier…

    I thought so..one whole year might be too far, the motivation to keep going is the challenge, but in the other hand,

    I have two lively toddlers running around the house and surely can’t just have my own time to learn easily..that’s why I really wonder should I just start to learn now and face the risk of running our of steam on later months..

    thanks for your kind thoughts guys 🙂
