I'd also like to know how the experts felt about this exam.

Though I imagine it's tough to gauge when you know every topic...

Sorry but I didn't work this exam under time constraints like I have previous exams. Overall it felt pretty reasonable to me. There were a handful of teadious questions but that is to be expected.

Oh okay thanks. I'm going to go with the assumption that 65 is still the magic number for this exam.

And thank you for the lessons! I wish most of the professors I had in college followed your teaching style.

You should have. That makes all the difference in the world. If this was a take home exam, I would have gotten a 96 on it.

TIA MLC Seminar

Go to the sample exams tab, scroll down to the MLC Spring 2018 section.

Since James is currently in production of LTAM lessons, we arenít going to make the video solutions right now, but we do have complete handwritten solutions ready. These should be available as a free sample, no need to log in or have access to the TIA MLC seminar.

As always, please let us know if you find any mistakes.
In your solution to WA #5b(iii), you used 5898 and 5948 as variances when in fact they are standard deviations.

The wait is absolutely killing me. Ridiculous that it's this long.
