Looking at syllabus, it seems like it is really similar to the old MLC exam. For those who passed MLC, do you have any tips, strategies to get a better shot at this exam? Thanks.

The vast majority of MLC material remains on LTAM, but there's a bunch of new material---so much so that i estimate there to be 20-25% more material on LTAM than on MLC. I've had to add a day to my exam-prep seminar.

That's not too bad. They basically cut out some of the "fat" that was previously on MLC in my opinion.

Passed C today! Going to take a month or so off and then definitely in for the Fall LTAM sitting.

Glad to hear that there's a bit of overlap in material between old C and new LTAM.

you think you can get LTAM in ~3 months? not knocking your aptitude, i'm simply asking because I don't think I'm capable of doing that lol
