I like that one haha.

Yeah, I know a lot of this will change based on how I'm doing on the sections and if I start to plateau. I'm scheduling on a weekly basis so that I can take weeks off to get over the plateaus.

The major question I have for people who've successfully studied is how to pace the drilling...Ideally i want to dedicate 3 hours of studying per day, so was it easier to do drill 2 sections in a day, or dedicate an entire section per day of the week?

Also, looking at Pithypike's study guide, I'm not sure how to spread out the drills (20 questions/day; or question type per week, etc) since different question types have different amounts of numbers.

Yes, I'm pretty neurotic, part of being an engineer lol.

Looks good to me. You'll find your groove once you start. However I didn't really use any rest days. I just went full force and took some rest breaks when needed, however I work full-time. If you are doing this all day everyday then perhaps a rest day is needed.
