I am finishing my undergrad this Spring (graduating a year early so 3 years for bachelors) but my school has a program where you can do a masters and my financial aid lasts 4 years so I'm getting a masters in Quant finance & risk analysis Spring 2018

Haha, my mistake. I have friends using TIA in the past. They all make good recommendations on it. Are you still planning to get any manual as supplement?

I got ASM for P and MFE and barely cracked it for either of them so I don't really like them. Especially for MFE where it was an exam that was mainly putting together a few things in different ways it felt wrong that everything was so separate.

I bought TIA and ASM 18th ed. I also had the ASM spiral bound into small booklets. I'm ready to sell ASM unused because TIA is doing a good job. I'm learning everything easier than reading ASM. It has 831 questions in the problem system and a handful of practice exams. I will definitely add ADAPT as usual.

I highly recommend TIA

I just used ASM - and not TIA.
As someone who knew almost nothing about C I found it adequate
