2016 and 2018 were the last major changes. '16 saw the addition of the new GLM paper; '18 saw the Fisher study note replace a bunch of stuff and two of the Mahler papers get dropped. This year just has the ISO CGL plan getting updated to the 2014 edition; not sure what real impact that has yet.

-- Candidate X has this pretty well outlined, too.

The material is definitely dense, but I think a lot of it has to do with how familiar you are with the topics. If you've done large account pricing, some of this will come easier. If you're doing GLM-type stuff, that might come easier. I would definitely agree, for things you don't know well or that don't click, find a 2nd source to help you decode it.
