The Study Method
Jeremy said he took roughly two and a half hours to do ALL of his studying for the exam. The study guide he used had about 40 pages. Then, he did not actually take the practice exams. Instead, Jeremy simply read all of the answer explanations extremely thoroughly.

Final Words of Advice
Nothing surprised Jeremy on the exam, and he felt most of the material was very straightforward. His advice is to take your time, actually read the questions on the exam and do not over-think it! The questions are not that complicated. Most people really psyche themselves out for the exam, making it more difficult than it really is. Simply understand that the material isn't that complicated and approach the exam in a calm and relaxed manner.
