    Remember when you first graduated, you look at the 5600 IDP hours and you thought to yourself how am I ever going to get through this? 5600 hours = 700 days = roughly 2 years if you work every single day. But for most people, it usually takes 3 to 4 years because: first, you don't work every single day; second, you don't always get to work on the required categories. For me, it took about 3 years. When I got the email from NCARB, it was one of the most exciting moments in my life. I want to share with you some tips that I have learned in completing my IDP, and some helpful links at the end of the article to help you navigate through this journey.

    Check out the article after the break.
