11.5 weeks for exam results... ugh. For MFE I got it in 8 weeks to the day. I keep hoping they'll come out early for MLC but I think they'll just release them July 13.

Oh they're definitely releasing the results on July 13, never early. They need more graders.

I am now completely convinced I have failed and don't even want the results to come out. I have reworked the "if I fail, I will...." and "if I pass, I will...." plans in my head a few times now.

I think I may start the PA module when it goes live in July regardless. Currently working on my last VEE (Econ Macro) which I take the exam for on 6/22. What's everyone else up to?

TI-30XS Multiview. The BA II Plus can occasionally be useful, but I reach for the multiview 99.5 times out of 100.

I would say that advice is true for all prelims except for FM, where you would use the BA II Plus much more often.

Pretending to be a normal human being. It is going well so far

the ti30xs multiview and baIIplus. there's one specific type of problem (IRR) that the BAIIplus comes in handy, but if it's a MC question, you can probably just plug in the solutions to get the answer.

I used TI30XS for all my studying and practice tests, then the day before my exam I had one practice test that had one question for IRR, so I brought my BAII Plus with me to the exam just in case, but didn't end up using it.
