I was never a flashcard guy and preferred outlines/notes. I always use TIA's flashcards as a skeleton for my outlines then did my own editing as I went through the manual/text.

But yeah, TIA's flashcards were shit for 9.

I hope it's August, because I really want to get started super early to have a shot at passing this exam.

I am potentially interested, with the caveat it being w/ anyone who has already taken the exam.

I have not taken exam 9 before. A lot of us passed 7 and 8 and haven't seen anything on 9 yet.
