How would a person like myself who works 40 hours be able to utilize this guide effectively? In other words from now and to october how should I be using that guide so that I'm on the right section at the right time. Any help will be appreciated, a little background,I have been studying a little bit over a month I finished the lg side of the guide up to advance linear and now I'm working on assumption flaw in the mlsat book. Is that a good start or I'm I behind in regards to that guide. Thank you in advance.
Well, first of all.. Pithypike's guide isn't the only self-study method. You'll probably need to develop your own method, and be more flexible in how and when you study. Studying doesn't always need to be done in giant chunks; if you're working crazy hours, make sure to schedule a few bits of time here and there to study each week. For example, you could try to study just an hour a day after getting home from work, and/or carry some material with you throughout your day to fit studying into gaps of time where you find yourself free. During your commute (if you ride the subway or bus) or your lunch break are perfect times to grab a few minutes of prep.
I can't say where you need to be at in your prep, as I don't know what score you're shooting for or what materials you have. You'll need to look at where you are in your studying and how much you think you need to do in order to figure out how you should adjust your study schedule (it's important to do this quite often throughout your prep to make sure you're always making progress and using your time effectively).
