I think you can only skip to the sections, but not actually search. Like skip to the discrete, normal table, which doesn't help that much I think.

I think that many of the 5/6 level problems are doable. What's disheartening is when I get a level 0-1 question wrong! How is that even happening?!?!

Glad I'm not the only one! I only just made flashcards after a couple exams for the few things I was having trouble remembering, like TVaR for Normal/LogNormal and all the Conjugate Prior stuff.

Only got 12/35 right on first practice test, totally skipped 18 questions, mostly MLE and Credibility. Is that typical? I didn't really review much except Chapter 1 though.

I don't know how you would search them, but I really wish they just gave us a hard copy. They already give you like 5000 sheets of paper for scratch work.

The relativities videos are pretty bad. It seems like almost nothing is explained, like in words, and he keeps pulling formulas out of nowhere.
