Just passed Macro with a 63 and maybe 10 hours of study. This is definitely the way to go.

Passed Macro today, took the advice of previous posters and got the $12 ACDC econ package with the ultimate review packet. Studied probably 12-15 hours and got a 68, ACDC was very good. Easy way to get VEE credit.

Agree with thread title. Just got a 67 today. Just watched $12 ACDC summary and reviewed the ultimate review packet. Probably 6 hours total.

Those of you that have been using the ACDC ultimate review packet, are you using the AP course ones or the introductory college course ones? Doesn't look like there's a big difference in the micro courses, but there seems to be a bigger difference in number of lessons and unit topics in the macro courses.

Where on the site do you find the "packet" (the stack of papers he waves around in the videos). I can't find it! Or is it just a collection of the study guides for each section, which is just questions and answers? Looking for more of a textbook type document...

I watched the Khan Academy videos, felt I actually learned something, and passed the exam with a 65. I think I probably over thought a few of the questions on the exam.

I got my grade and thought it was a %, so I did the math and was like "65% is 52 questions correct.....SOA needs 53 minimum.....did I just fail by one question?!?" and spent about five minutes panicking before I realized I was thinking about it wrong.

Question; which VEE is easiest to get off your plate in this world of no exam centers?
