Appears WA0 is not calculated correctly. Does anyone agree? I don't want to post answers in case anyone is saving these for practice exams.
Spoiler:
Agreed, I'm not sure what he's plugging in to get his values, I'm getting 1.467 just from the rest of his numbers. Probably just a calculator typo. I'll email him in case he stopped checking this thread.

He confirmed the answer he has up there is a typo.

problem 17 of exam 2.

Here is my approach:

I backed out the Surplus from the CEV that is given --> backed out the target return from the Premium --> plugged this into the standard duration formula for FV. I do not get the same answer that he got. Anyone see anything wrong with this approach?

Thanks.

What's everyone's thoughts on these? Thinking about using CC + Source + these instead of TIA

I've made my feelings on these pretty clear, so I personally wouldn't recommend that route. CC is great, although I don't know how well it works as a standalone source (since I used it in conjunction with TIA). But without the TIA reviewed past exams (stripped down/modified to relevant questions) and the TIA practice exams, I just don't think you'll get enough exam practice.

I didn't use CC, so I have no comment, but everyone seemed to like the manual to supplement TIA.

I used TIA + MathTiger practice exams. While I think there were a few mistakes with the MathTiger exams, I still think they were really good exams. There were definitely a few problems in those exams that made me change the way I looked at certain topics and were really helpful on a few problems on the actual exam. I think they helped me pass.
