The Flexible Plan Is The Best Plan

Yesterday I was a little concerned about my new study plan. I felt like I was falling short. This morning I made up some of the time I had missed on my plan. It didn’t take long to plug the gap and I was actually more eager to study because I wanted to prove to myself Read More

Starting With A Study Plan

It’s all well and good having a study plan, but it won’t work if you don’t stick to it. So far, I’m not sticking to it.
