Got an 8. 2nd attempt.

read source material and used TIA and CC as supplements for practice questions, although I didn't care for TIA. CC by itself would be sufficient as a supplement if practice exams were added.

For source material I read the papers that were recently added and the ones that I struggled with. BKM is extremely long and imo not worth reading, it's been in the exam a long time as well so TIA covers it pretty well. I read the source for Robbin, Kreps, Coval, and Ferrari if I remember correctly. I also skimmed the new BKM chapters, 14 and 24? I can't remember, the two that were recently added to the syllabus.
