Thanks! I haven't read it, but FYI, CF said that Mack 94 was an extremely unapproachable text. I think the exact wording was "depressing and uninviting".

Alejandro completely redid his lessons this year. TIA is considerably better than it was last year.

I didn't use TIA last year, but having done RF/CF before for 7 I think TIA is great. I also like learning fun facts about the Argentinian blue market.
