New FAQ out by CAS says 7, 8, and 9 will all be offered in both Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.

I'm back to doing problems now. Like I said earlier I'm going to knock out around 30 minutes of problems every weekday for a while and see where that gets me. I did 3 Brosius problems this morning and crushed them, so you could say I'm basically ready now.
You're so ready, Bro

I think this 3 problems every weekday thing is working out pretty well for me. Definitely not overdoing it and still getting some light practice in to not forget things.

I realized that there is a study kit for this exam but I can't find it on the Cas website can anyone else? When I search publications I get nothing.

Edi: apparently if you log out, find it, then put it in your cart, then log in you can buy it.

I bought the book for cheaper than the cost of the study kit...

Plus that way you get an extra chapter (not on syllabus), appendix of continuous distributions, and an index. Presumably you also get the reference details they make throughout so you can look up the papers cited.

Also, you don't have to guess what was written in the holes punched through some of the important footnotes. It's so annoying that thr CAS did that with the study kit.

I took a week or so off since work's been busy. I'm gonna get back to my 30 minutes a day next week. It's hard to be motivated right now. I think the goal right now is to just not forget everything I learned and pick back up to an hour a day or so in July.
