I failed last 3 sittings but I used TIA for Spring and October 2018 and still failed. I used Bedford for Spring 2019 but failed too. I think pass rate of 72% kind of high but whatever it is what it is. I plan to use these two (TIA and Bedford) jointly this sitting! I think itís just the questions not me weíll see. Use Examiners Reports as well to help you see how they want them worded to get more credit.

thanks

Yes it is. Maybe that is why I am more confused on how to study for it. Especially with only 3 months left, I am a bit stressed on the best way to approach studying. I have gone through the material once at a broad level, but am stuck on if I should do problems or go through the material deeper first.

You should definitely be doing problems.

+1 on doing problems as this will help identify what materials are still needed to be "mastered" at the basic level.

Going "deeper" without mastery of the basics is wasted time/effort.

For those of you who wrote MAS I, what do you feel is the biggest difference between MAS I and 5? I'm wondering if I need to study differently for this exam...I felt that MAS I had so many small detailed and rigorous calcuations... whereas exam 5 seems more high level to me. More explaining and conceptual... do you guys find that too?

How many months do you guys suggest for practice problems?
