Like anything, it's what you get used to. Most of these exams just come down to storing intermediate calculations in memory and recalling them. You develop a system of storing and recalling information. Glad they didn't put bigger loss triangles on 5. I would have been a row and column short of places to store stuff.

Anyone else constantly swaying between, "Hey I think I might actually be able to pull this off!" and "I'll definitely be taking this in the Spring."?

I kinda hope they ask a Dearie question, but also kinda believe they'll ask it in such a way as I'll have no idea what they're looking for, even though the answer should be obvious.

I'm thinking it will go either of two ways:
1. They want to ask a question on the material because it is new.
2. They won't ask a question on the material because it is new and no one on the exam committee has read it.
