I passed MFE in July and bought the newest manual for exam C,but have no courage to start it. I have not read one page of the manual and do not think that I can pass it before next FEB.

I like this idea. I've got Adapt as well and I think I'll do weekly cumulative quizzes also. Maybe just at level 1-5 and about 5-10 questions. Thanks for mentioning that, BelayMeMaybe.

do you mind sharing the template?
I have one additional tab that I added from my old TIA calendar, it is just a schedule for the TIA lessons. The template is my tracker, I want to get going full steam by october 1.

A Pimp Named Slickback, you left your name on the document just fyi. You may not care but I just wanted to give you a heads up.

thanks for sharing. I have something similar for mine but this is much more pleasing to the eye.

also, the Boondocks is soooooo underrated. I love that show

I asked someone who wrote it last year. She said it's on the computer and opens a link that takes you to the normal table, a link that takes you to discrete distributions and a link that takes you to the continuous distributions. Lots of scrolling time.

I've managed to forget everything from P in under a year... Okay, slight exaggeration but this is pretty frustrating. How are y'all getting along with the material so far?

It's going very slowly already as I didn't remember much of P at all! I am on schedule with the TIA lectures but I had to review section A1 three times. I decided to use the Mahler manual as well and it is helping. It seems conditional probability is my nemesis yet again
