CPA study schedule

Hi all,

For those of you who took the CPA exam while working full time, what were your schedules like?

I am currently using Wiley and am trying to follow the study schedule it set up for me on my online account.  I have it set up to study every day except Fridays (I end up studying every day though…).  I try to study 1 hour before work and maybe 1-2 hours after work if I still have the brain power.  During the weekend I just sit at my desk all day practically.  I will be taking FAR in early November ?

Any suggestions and tips on how you guys managed to pass while being very busy?
