I am also writing C in june and I heard ASM manual is the right choice. All my colleagues who have passed this exam used ASM and that's what I going with as well.

ASM manual plus two months of ADAPT exams should be sufficient.

I have the same plan. ASM Manual plus at least 2 months of Adapt. It worked well with MFE Exam. Just have to buy the ASM Manual - I guess I missed the window when people who passed the exam were selling theirs.

If you prefer learning through lecture, go with TIA. IF you prefer reading, go with ASM or Mahler. Either way, purchase the Mahler Practice Exams.
