If you need help tracking which subjects you've covered and which you haven't because all your brain cells have died in the process of trying to cram knowledge into your head that you may or may not use in the probable future.....then you're in the right place!

This is just my personal plan I'm (trying) to follow. Sections in red are areas I wanted to cover by a certain date, but failed to do so. Womp, womp!
