With the official Exam 5 pass released today, I'm ready to get started. Good luck to all of the other Exam 6 takers!

The major syllabus changes were getting rid of Vaughn and the new flood paper, or am I missing something else?

I've started on TIA. The regulation stuff isn't so bad to listen to.. more like a history lesson. The accounting stuff has me struggling to stay awake though.

I don't think it's that big of a deal.. I mean obviously the big ones (Sch P, Sch F) you don't need to memorize. Schedule D is bonds and Schedule A is real estate. I don't really see the benefit of learning any others?

So, you need something to help you remember what a mnemonic is?
