One way, for example, is "t p x i to j", or "t p x i continuously".

Hi guys,

Does anybody know the changes from last sitting to this sitting? I have the 2017 manual but have heard that some topics are not included, dor de-emphasized.

Thanks for all your insights!

Is that true? It was my understanding that the syllabus is the same but will change when it becomes LTAM. I could be wrong though.

Is it to late to start studying for the April 2018 sitting?
I plan on using TIA but was wondering if 3 months is enough to pass mlc using TIA only.
I am still a student and would only have classes 3 days a week.
The rest of days would be devoted to studying.
Also, I am new to the material.
