Nice progress from everyone. Now I'm pumped. I need to catch up.

Finishing up with my review of the Mahler guide. Going to start on his exams this weekend. Maybe get a short Adapt subscription in the last few weeks before the exam

Question: are the questions on the exam in the same (or almost the same) order as the syllabus?

Why not ADAPT before Mahler?

I can't keep track of the notation or the formulas, so by the time I figure out what a question is asking and what kind of approach it needs, I'm sort of done. I really need to watch the review video again but it's probably not enough and I need to suck it up and watch some of the content videos.

What is the turnaround time for grades? I couldn't find the grade release date on the CAS site.

There's not a set date ahead of time. The release date depends on when they can schedule meetings with certain exam committee members and the Admissions VP. For fall exams, it's usually about the second week of December.

Are NLM on the exam? I didn't see it on syllabus (maybe I overlooked), but I see the formulas on the formula sheet for Adapt
