And there are a few pages in Bernegger with terribly complicated formulas that you know you can skip as soon as you see them. I think for those parts, it's like needing to know what E[X] is and how to use it, but no chance they would want you to memorize the formula for it. It's overall a quick read.

I might take this statement back in the future. But, I gotta say, studying for this exam after the exam 6 is like a breeze. The fact that I actually got to go through the TIA material twice and have some time to read the source material is like mindblowing. So much less intense.

I absolutely agree. Maybe (ok definitely) I'm biased with having only pricing experience, but the majority (sections B & C) of the syllabus are concise and intuitive. Plus every paper in 8 can really be understood in a vacuum, versus 6 basically cross referenced material from the get go. I understand why some people thought 6 was overblown but I am not one of them. It takes a while to finally "get it".

Thanks trueblade.
