Hi Melissa, you and I are in similar situations. I often wonder how I was able to stay motivated in undergrad and graduate school, but yet studying for this exam has proven to be a challenge. I am preparing to take BEC in May. My motivation has been to keep it simple and allow myself at least 2hrs a day in studying. I study 1/2 hr during lunch at work , and at least 1 1/2 hrs after work. That allows me to get deep into the subject matter, and feel like I have accomplished something. It can sometimes be a challenge with a family, but I'm also trying to set an example and teach my boys that when you put your mind to something you can perservere and succeed. Good luck and stay motivated !!!!
