Best Guess: Which category of Scripture is your weakest area (of fluency)?

What part of Scripture is your weakest spot?  This may involve a guesstimate.  For example, if you are weak in Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy but strong in Genesis and Exodus, are you weak in the Torah?  That is for you to decide as you compare sections.  Your comments are appreciated, as well as testimonies about how you "shored up" weak areas.

For me it is the poetic books. For some reason I have just neglected them. Lately I have been listening through the Bible so I have been through them a couple of times while driving.

For me it is the prophets right now. In the past I have found that reading chunks at a time over and over helps to gain a better grasp on what is there.

I spent five months preaching through Hosea last year. What a trial by fire. It forced me to get a much firmer grasp on the Minor Prophets, as well as the unconditional nature of the Abrahamic Covenant, and the impossibility of keeping the Mosaic Law (Gal 2:21). I think I'm much better at OT than I am at NT. I've read Genesis - Deuteronomy twice each this year so far, and all the prophets. I've been spending much more time in the OT than the NT. I actually believe Deuteronomy is one of my favorite books!

I love the Old Testament a real lot, too.  I did a lot of research when I realized that much of the Sermon on the Mount is an exposition on parts of Deuteronomy (and Leviticus 19).  So many treasures!   So much good stuff!
