Advice during IFR training

*use the sim as much as possible (for as cheap as possible) the approaches should be your bread and butter before stepping into an aircraft

*Prep for each flight as much as possible (these will be the most expensive flights you will probably do)

*In the real world unless the sh*t really hits the fan, you'll be doing only ILS and RNAV approaches

*In my view too much focus is applied to the approach end of IFR training. I've encountered too many people who can't detail a departure from a ctaf in IMC/ radio calls for the flight or various cruise procedures (diversions, bad weather, traffic) I suggest you have management plans or even schematics to help make things easier

Remember finally, because you are allowed to fly through CU cloud doesnt necessarily make it a smart idea...
