Testing Skills

 Schedule

Your studying schedule should include when you are going to study, when you have to go to work, any family responsibilities you may have, and breaks.  There are definitely others that you can include but this is a good place to start.  Below will be a more extensive list of items that you can schedule.  As a reminder, your schedule should be there to give you a structure.  Life happens, so you need to be flexible. When life happens, stop, review, update and continue moving forward.
