The FAQ thread has a little about it from Kida, I think.
Best advice I've ever received on these types of things- be it new schools, deployments, etc.... is "act like you've done it before". Followed closely with "be who you want to become".
Basically with anything (especially training), treat it as real as you can. Treat yourself like a sniper going through additional training or something. You're not trying to simply "pass", but to truly understand and master each subject to better yourself, and to hopefully continue on.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
