    I basically just studied the Valley materials. I read the sweat book once thoroughly and then a second time just reviewing the bolded and highlighted material. I also read through the memory master as much as possible and the mixed reviews.
    A friend had sent me a copy of all the lightening bolts and bullets from MM that someone had taken the time to put into Word format. I read through those a couple of times.
    I also, bought the Prodigy practice tests and did those a couple of times each.

    I studied for 1 month. The first two weeks was leisurely reading at a local coffee shop for a about 2 hrs a day, sometimes 3. In the last 2 weeks, I went into panic mode and put in about 6 hrs a day. I took weekends off of studying to be with the family except the last weekend before my exam.

    I had my results in 15 days.

    My only advice is...don't freak out when you see really hard questions that you have no idea what they are asking. The answers will sometimes be obvious but others you have to work through your knowledge of several areas to come up with an educated guess! I acutally knew about 50% or less of the answers. For at least another 25% I could narrow it down to 2 answers and then had to guess. The rest was a total crap shoot!

    Good luck.
