things that helped me pass (in order):

1. source texts
2. flashcards in Anki directly created from source texts (1500 in total)
3. CC
4. RF

i couldn't have passed without any of these. i didn't feel i had any gaps in my knowledge not covered by the above. i realize #1 and 2 might not be for everyone, but in my opinion a really good understanding of the source material is critical and taking shortcuts aren't worth it.

My company paid for TIA and even then I still regret the decision.

Like others noted - the notecards weren't helpful either (nor were the exams)... and those are the two things that I was hoping to say "at least I have these," but just couldn't

Okay, I'll take this feedback into account for sure.

outdated Fox note cards >>> current TIA note cards

Fox note cards may be too wordy. I really liked RF flashcards for exam 7. Try to bug Steve for him to make one!
