Read all the sources carefully and take good notes that you can review, take all of the past exams in realistic conditions, kinda normal prelim stuff. Consider TIA if you have the resources (formula sheets, practice problems/exams, and video lectures are all helpful for reinforcing things).

I personally did not run a whole lot of code but others recommend that so that you can actually use the stuff in your job.

I think the best thing you can do is get through your first run early and spend plenty of time revising and recalling the stuff since it's such a wide variety.

I'm about to sit for this exam in the Spring. Watching all the TIA videos right now. After finishing the videos for each section, I plan to read the source material for that section. Then I plan to do all 300+ practice problems on TIA and then do the practice exams. Should I be good after that?
