Eddie, have you had a chance to look at the exam? What are your initial thoughts?

Personally, I think it felt fair but kind of strange. There were calculations but not the types I was expecting and was very light on the actual math

Overall fair. I think because LFV can really swing back and forth between verbal heavy and calculation heavy, that that aspect can catch people off guard. It's impossible to know how calculation heavy it will be sitting to sitting.

What about the hockey-land exam?

I was a bit surprised with the amount of CALM calculation questions. Simply because it feels as if we are moving away from CALM.

Ha yeah. Exams don't always reflect reality. The volunteers with Canadian GAAP background are going to be pretty fluent in CALM by now, so they may have just fallen back on their comfort zone.

It's funny -- I have vidid memories of when CALM was the new trendy thing. Time flies and quickly turns innovative new approaches into historical footnotes.
