Small change to Exam 8 for the fall. Does anyone know if the NCCI updates are big changes?

Also, no more that 2 Integrative Questions on the fall exam. I am glad there aren't going to be 3.

Same here. I'm probably gonna use TIA again. It worked so well for 5 and 6 for me.

Itís really, really good for this exam. Josh pulls the testable info out of a lot of difficult papers. Only one he doesnít cover well enough is the GLM paper (but that paper is DENSE, though very readable), and he makes up for it by having lots of really useful original questions given the lack of historical problems.

yea it's pretty weird, but on the bright side, if we fail 7 then we will definitely get the GLM question next time around

I'm getting back into this - my short break after associateship is now almost 3 years, so...

For those that use both TIA and the Rising Fellow cookbook, do you wait to use the cookbook until after your first pass with a seminar, or use it section by section along with the TIA?
