Wishing all those writing the May CFE this Wednesday, May 25 – Friday, May 27 the very best! You’ve worked hard for the past weeks whether you had the 5-6 weeks off or had to do it around work and (some) relief is near.
Here are some final tips to get through this week:
- If you haven’t already taken the weekend off, make sure you take a break before Wednesday. At minimum I would suggest taking Tuesday entirely off from work and study. Don’t study anymore during the exam, you need to rest in between days.
- Sleep is super important. Get a good sleep before the exam and during the three days.
- Remember, this is a three-day examination and every day counts. Don’t get discouraged if you have a bad day and think that you’ve failed so you won’t try as hard on what’s left. Most people feel terrible walking out of one or more of the exam days. Every day count and you need to put in 100% on all three days.
- Don’t talk about the exam until after it’s over. There is little reward and lots of risk of getting discouraged because you missed something that somebody else had identified (correctly or not).
With that, good luck and best wishes!
