I’ve taken one day off every other week to try to get ahead, but there is also a holiday in there, that’s helping me out. Yea! Currently I’m a little ahead, with only three books left (one is the massive 503 GCIA lab book). I’ve found indexing the 401 material to be somewhat basic – I’m wishing I had done that first to get it out of the way and have the more difficult material fresh in mind.

So far, it seems that I’m on track to take the test the first week of December as planned. IF all goes well, I’ll have four months or so to study for the practical part of the exam.
