We have had some luck in the past with a Chapter by Chapter review, with
say a week or two for each.

Some of our chapters haven't changed in some time, so we could just note
that and move on.

There have to be fairly strict rules about not looking forward or
backward, except to resolve cross references.  Otherwise, the
examination degenerates.  But it can work, given strong leadership.
