(actually, I guess I do have a question: Who/what is MathTiger? My quick googling gave me nothing, but I'm curious to see what the study materials look like)

CAS has started publishing changes to syllabus.

An 11th edition of Investments by Bodie, Z.; Kane, A.; and Marcus, A.J is available. References
will be updated for this new edition, but the 10th edition will remain as a valid text reference.
So BKM 10th edition is still ok, right?

I think so. I thought there were some good problems in the text that have not been tested on past exams. Also, this past exam problem 1 part a seemed like it was from a textbook problem.

Yeah probably. not much usually changes from one edition to the next:

https://www.mheducation.com/highered...vestments.html

It looks like the only updated chapter that affects us is chapter 7's update.

I'll probably stick with the 10th ed. and solutions manual since it'll be cheaper.

There's a longer list of updates here:

Looks like it includes chapters that are on the syllabus. I'm leaning toward getting the 10th edition still though, because it doesn't look like there's a solutions manual for the 11th edition yet and when I called the publisher they couldn't tell me when it would be available.
