Let's hope so, I took the two versions of the exam since I got screwed on the first exam but still took it. I just changed my approach on the make-up but hopefully one of them was good enough. Technically this is my third attempt, I took the ones in 2010 and 2011 when it was still an annual exam.

It's a group chat, that can turn into a video conference if necessary. We also can screen share over video conference.

I see. Just curious, how would the group be using this when studying?
I assume everyone is going to have a different study schedule and different availability.

Would this mainly be a coordinated weekend meetup kind of thing or just join whoever is studying kind of thing?

Is TIA really the only decent study material for this?
Anyone here using anything other than TIA?
This is my first time studying for it and the TIA isnt great. I'm used to using the infinite actuary but I liked the structure of 5 better. The main upside to purchasing it is the organization of the topics and the problems. But the reading/vidoes are mostly similar to the actual text.

We're still figuring it out based on the people who join. Yes, we all have different schedules, but since we're all 4/5 scorers we are going to be able to dig into deeper topics or bring up the unusual things we have seen. It'll be somewhere to turn to bring up random topics we see or problems we may have issues with. In my mind its a support network to keep going since we're so close.

I know companies are paying for it but damn I feel like this shouldn't be worth $1200 plus they're charging.

Btw, the source material is the consolidated mini texts totaling to 1976 pages and that's it right? Or are there additional materials that I need to be aware of?

Thanks in advance.
