Start with Odomirok and breeze through until you get to Schedules F & P, which you can focus on.

We can solve your problem. BattleActs is currently offering our new Exam 6-US interactive, online study system for free to candidates who are willing to be beta testers.

You will find a well-defined pathway through the mountain of readings (Hint: Don't study the readings alphabetically - study them according to how often they have appeared on past exams. We've tabulated this so you don't have to.), as well as top questions that appear on many past exams, a full wiki with separate articles for each reading written IN PLAIN ENGLISH! …and much more.

We are replicating the successful system we created for Exam 6-Canada! Virtually everyone taking Exam 6-Canada in Fall 2018 used BattleActs to prepare.

Interested? Go to our beta info page at: https://www.battleactsmain.ca/betaTestInfo_6US.php

You can't. It doesn't exist. Management determines what's uncollectible.

Anyone actually buy the Porter book? I haven't had to buy actual source material in so long I'm curious as to if that's still a thing people actually do...or if they just rely on TIA/etc.

I definitely liked having it available to read. But I didn't buy, someone else at my company had a copy from when they took it.

Yes, but is this discussed in the source material? There is a question on an old exam about this, but can't find the topic in Odomirok. Not sure if still on syllabus.
