Less. I have neither set of flash cards anywhere near me but I believe FV has 5-15% less flash cards. In my opinion FV is much less memorization. More understanding. If you put both those things...

Going through the reserving for long term benefits now. I like drawing a time line for the sum of disability payments calculations. It winds up being a transformed chart, just a little messier. (vs...

At this point I’m having trouble imagining this exam happening. I just don’t see how this is possible. It’s in what, 6 weeks. We’ll still be sitting in our homes for the next 8 most likely.

I’m over it! Got it all out! I am indeed enjoying 103 16. Falling behind schedule, (even without doing practice exams, just reading) but I figure 103 16 is particularly good so it’s worth it.
