Last two months


Advice from those who scored 90+, how much did you study during the last two months before the exam date?(specifically those who took elite) did you randomly pick what lessons to go over for the day or did you pick them based on some other factor? Today I did 4 hours and studied 212 Part 2. What did you guys do ?

To kind of answer your question my buddy who took Elite studied the 3 , 4, 5 shield procedures . Did a lot of questions and scored 90 plus. In my opinion whether you have Elite or key ( whatever your preference) its all about the amount of time you put in. Focus on the material what they say is testable and I believe everyone will pass. Right now we have many people who started going hard with the studying and have slowed down now. Study put in the work and youll pass- good luck

The month before the test I was putting in 5-6 hours. The last month I had 17 days leading into the exam, so all of those days I read 8-10 hours like an EDP. The last 40 or so days, I read the Elite packets for every section (20 at that time) so I reviewed everything twice.

That last month is when you start sprinting and you review everything as much as possible. Repetition is a good way to retain all of that information.

Totally agree with PD2FDhes one of the gurus. Whatever you do though, just dont listen to a word DRPapi says. Whatever he says, do the opposite and you will ace the exam!

When you guys say 5-6hrs and then last 30days before exam 8-10hrs , is that in one sitting? Like with absolutely no distractions? Or u guys break it up throughout the day?

repetition and immersion is key. act like your life depends on it. just keep reading. force it down like vegetables. take mental breaks then start over again. study everyday. the people who pass aren't the most gifted; brightest or smartest. they just kept studying.

most people have already quit and given up already. don't be most people.

 personally, i don't even work 8-10 hours straight so i'm sure as hell not reading 8-10 hours straight lol.

 

i scored in 80's.  what i would do is study in blocks. an hour or so of questions on the train. go to work. a couple more questions on meal.  when i went home i listened to lectures if i got tired of reading.  then i'd do some more questions or the interactive learning module to break up the monotony.

 

Best thing you can do is learn how you learn.

 

If you don't know how you learn then just immerse and repeat.  the brain is excellent at memorizing patterns.

 

put in the work and you'll pass.

Scored in 90s on 17 exam bombed in basket went perfect on patrol guide questions

Down the stretch I would listen an hour in the car each way prob read 2-3 hours and do 2 hours of questions a day plus key app and elite app phone questions if waiting anywhere

I score right around 80. I never opened the patrol guide and I just did packets from the Key, along with the app with questions which I barely did. I studied about last month before weeks around 2hrs a day.

With that said, I regret not studying a bit more especially section 221 when it came out. Lesson learned for LT exam.

Everyone's different. You need to know your brain.

 in my experience from people i've talked to that have passed...

people that have solely done questions with little to no reading scored lower than people who've read the book and done questions...and by lower i mean 70 to 77 range...the 80's and 90's passers read the patrol guide.

 

i read the entire patrol guide (sgt's duties) once.  toward the end i was doing questions and whenever i got a question wrong i'd read that entire procedure over.

 

i'd also read the more "interesting" or relative procedures as well just to break up the monotony.
