    I have all ExamKrackers books and Audio Osmosis and I am trying to find the home study guide (recommended schedule) and Jordan or Jon email on request. Would a kind soul who happens to have this item be able to email it to me? The EK bulletin boards have apparently been down for a week.
    Thanks

    You mean since SDN changed to the new version? Or did you mean EK possibly changing the the schedule to a new one.

    The post I just put up was the one I was referring to on the search boards. I was able to get it by typing in the search Examkrackers Home Schedule.

    Now, if EK changed the schedule from this one, then I''ll have to wait till Jon or
    Jordan replies.

    That's great, much better to start from a tried and true schedule than to reinvent the wheel.
    Thanks and good luck!
