February 2018 Exam C Thread
 
I just passed MFE and I am so ready to start this. I wanted to after sitting for MFE in July but I just didn't think I'd have enough time for the Oct sitting. I am using TIA and ASM, but they are both outdated (MY COPY NOT WHAT THEY SELL). I'll get ADAPT later on to help with what I don't have.


I did a comparison between my old table of contents and the current for ASM, not a whole lot missing. Just 12 sections added, not many pages per section. I can also sell my MFE manual to another guy here to fund my next test.

I just passed MFE too! Right after I took MFE in July, I tried riding my momentum and started studying for C even though there was the risk of me not passing MFE. I got through about 30% of the material with TIA. I was interning still as well, so all that made me burnt out, so I stopped studying.

Now that I know I passed MFE, I hope to get my next internship locked by mid-October and go back to studying for C. What's your study plan?

Will be joining as well now that I've gotten my pass from MFE. Would you be able to elaborate upon the whole "I am using TIA and ASM, but they are both outdated"? I just invested in TIA and am hoping that I didn't spend ~$900 for outdated material.

I would also be curious to know. As far as I am aware, our seminar is completely up to date.

I'm going to start early October and try to finish the material before December. Then start practice problems and get ADAPT for a month or two for practice up until the exam. I know that the last two weeks for me are the hardest so I need to start a little early.

I have copies from before the exam change in 2012. I went through my copy of ASM and the notes from TIA, not much change overall. I think I'll have a few small topics that I may need to supplemental lessons to make up for what I don't have. ADAPT will likely be enough to make up for that, I hope.

why is TIA outdated?

I was supposed to start studying after MFE but I've barely done anything

TIA is an online course
