Preparing for P2 resit in June 2016

I am wondering if anyone can offer any words of wisdom or tips on how to prepare for a P2 resit in June 16. I will be self studying after originally doing face to face tuition for my first attempt in December 15.

It was my first exam as I qualified by exemption from F level modules and I found it very difficult and stressful to fit around full time work and home life with children.

Any secrets are appreciated!

Full time job with children cause a lot of time pressure on you to manage it effectively to ensure enough preparation for a professional exam.

Available time for study could be classified in to two categories. One is focused time and other one is multi tasking time.

Focused time is the time where you could sit and study in a silence and utlize each and every second of it but with work and personal life commitments you would have multi tasking time available where you would be doing something else like commuting to and from work, jogging, cooking and cleaning etc where you could listen lectures and partially utilize that time.

Try to take couple of days off before exam which help to get you in a persuasive flow for the exam.

Best of luck!
