So CF/RF seems to be the preferred combo. Is their full package worth it or just manual + Cookbook? I havenít gotten much out of videos for most exams but realized I watched them for 8 on the train. Might be the extra pieces I need to pass on a first sitting.
The full package is worth it. It sounds like the videos have improved since the first round.

Does anyone know how that guy did that was posting all over LinkedIn that he was going to try 7&9 in the same sitting again? What was the result this time? (just curious). I know it would be near impossible for me, but that's just me.

I should say, I "think" I'll be in for this one again next year. It may depend partly on how the syllabus changes (if at all). I suppose it's possible that taking 9 first will be my best option, but will have to wait and see. For now, it's back to 8. See some of you over there.

For those who have taken them, any tips on this exam as it compares to 8 & 9?

The material feels a lot more useless imo. Some formulas are really too long and probably not testable, but some other long formulas are

Source material isn't great, but neither are the available guides. Going to focus more on the source for my second go round.
