Level II Candidates pressure cooker (letting off steam!)
Just finished my fourth week of study towards Level II. My wrist feels very fragile from hours upon hours of writing.
How are others doing?
I've been progressing through the official curriculum in the linear order of the chapters but I'm pleasantly surprised that so far, I've not found any of the material so dull that I've wanted to skip it. On the contrary, I've enjoyed a lot of what I've read.
On the other hand, the volume is absolutely killing me. I've been rigid about progressing to the next Study Session every Monday, and if I fail to finish a Study Session, too bad, I'll have to catch up later. On average 14 hours per week of reading, but even that feels like less than half of what I ought to be doing.
Is this why so many people call Level II the hardest? I hope no truly difficult subjects crop up later on in the curriculum, that would really be a hell week :-D
