Since my last blog
entry I have come a long way. I have
spend about 1-2 hour per day reading the book and made it from chapter 3 to
chapter 8. My schedule has been to spend
my lunch hour reading, then after I work out at the gym I sit in the café for
another hour reading, then I read for about an hour and a half at night when my
daughter goes to bed. I still spend an
hour on Friday afternoons at work reading.
My goal is to have the
entire book complete by January 8th.
With the book read I will have two weeks to work solely on calculations
and formulas. I start back to school on
January 9th so having the book compete by then is a must.
Currently, my struggles
and concerns are mainly the calculations.
I’ve seen just about all of the calculations in the book before in
school but there are just so many!
Chapter 5 was loaded with calculation after calculation. I’ve read that they are easier to remember if
you know what they do but that really isn’t working for me. I’ve also read that you can do a brain dump
and write all the formulas in your head on the white board as soon as the exam
starts. My problem is how do you get any
of them to stick in your head?
Hopefully over the next
I get a good handle on the formulas.
