What is the difference between the Study Aids and the Seminar Slides, both available on Actex website?

The study guides are more extensive.
The seminar slides are what would be covered in a class or seminar, and are a subset of what is in the study guides.

Check out the descriptions and samples at the bookstore.

Default Fall 2018 Writing

Should we expect a new edition of the manual for the Fall 2018 writing of MAS-I, or should we just stick with the edition that's currently being sold?

Thanks

The current edition is it for this year; stick with the current edition.

(In the absence of syllabus changes I have been updating once a year.)

You are the greatest of all time. When I have taken C, your material was greatly helpful. I aced the exam and have been suggesting your stuff to fellow colleagues ever since.

It would be surprising, but I was wondering if you are considering providing study material for exam PA (Predictive Analytics)?

Unfortunately, I have a lot on my plate now, thus not for the foreseeable future.
