Practicing on the MFD questions provides by TIA. Everything forwards smoothly but I feel something strange. It is easy to grasp the big picture of every section, every chapter. However, it is too hard to image where can be tested, actually, every basic concept can be tested deeply.

How about you Buddy?

Glad everything is going smoothly You may have noticed this already, but just wanted to mention if you want to see how concepts could be tested based on exam-style questions, try out the "TIA Exam-Level Questions" in the practice tab of the seminar. For example, when you're ready, you can work through the Section 1 supplemental practice problems in the "TIA Exam-Level Questions" problem set. There are 115+ total exam-style questions with solutions in that PDF.

A lot of people like to "build up" to this by starting with the video quizzes, practice tab drill problems, MFD end of chapter problems, and then once they have those under their belt they will try the TIA Exam-Level Questions as those are the most challenging and most similar to exam-style format. Hopefully that helps and good luck

Very appreciated for these advices!

Just a quick check, what is the most optimal time to practice those exam-level questions, I decide to practice those questions from the last week of September or even from October after finishing the other practice questions such as MFD, VS, FIS etc, is that a late schedule for most candidates?

I would say late Sept works. One other piece of advice I have is that for longer problem sets, it's ok to do something like odds only on a first pass, and then evens only on a second pass closer to the exam. Sometimes splitting it up and working through the problem set in two chunks makes you learn more instead of "cramming" it all at once. It completely depends on the person though, so it's up to you.
