Lol.. didn't mean to flex. Just wanted to emphasize how under prepared I felt for the exam. But I do see why you would think that I was. Apologies if I came across as a flexer (not sure if that is a word)

Wrote the exam for the second time (the first attempt was in fall 2017 and got a 5), walked in much more ready and confident compared to last time yet I feel the exam was way more brutal than the previous 2 sittings. I did "ok" in the morning but the afternoon is what surprised me, felt it was much harder than the previous afternoons.

Looking at the new syllabus for spring 2019, I feel the changes are substantial

Do you have link to 2019 syllabus? I couldnít find it.
Also, I felt afternoon was simple. The morning was brutal as I skipped so many questions that I canít possibly pass.

Hey Zak, is there a separate thread or place within TIA forum to discuss the exam now that it's over? It's always a small group taking it but always nice to hear others' thoughts.
