IA, FA, 1, 2, 7, 6, 3, 4

However, there is a wide gulf between the 6 EOMs and IA or FA. I didn't think any of the EOMs were hard at all. IA was a pain, and I really admit I have no idea how I got MMR on the 2nd attempt. The jury is still out on FA as I am submitting round 2 tomorrow. Last shot at it!

hmmm, actually now that I think about it, I did a ton of research on the ao and in old google groups before even downloading it. if I count that, my hours go way up.
Yes, I spent around 18-19 hours per day.

I thought that IA was the devil. Not being able to discuss anything made the ambiguousness of wording borderline intolerable for me. I know some people didn't mind it at all, but I struggled with it.

I also think there is a massive divide between the first 4 items in my list and the last 4. 2 was one of the worst things I've ever seen and 1 was just the shock of "what in the flying shit am I supposed to do for this thing?"

Can't adequately express how happy I am to be done with this process. I would literally have preferred an additional exam and, honestly, probably 2. Hated it that much. And I worked in consulting, lol. I'm comfortable writing. Lack of direction about what was expected was really a struggle for me.

I agree that there is a wide gap between the assessments and the exercises as others have noted.

seems like we all pretty much agree on 4 and FA, but have differing views on the rest.
