Bummer, I was hoping for midnight. I'm anxious as well.

Passed!
To study I used TIA lessons. In the home stretch I used Adapt exams. My perspective: my exam most closely resembled the TIA problems. Not much about corporate finance.
I spent about 3 months studying at a leisurely pace (Was extremely busy in my final qtr at uni), and then more aggressively cranked out problems during the next four weeks.

Weird.. Isn't corporate finance supposed to cover 40% of the exam ?
Everyone seems to feel that qualitative questions were hard, could you tell me more about it ?

I was lucky to pass as well. I think I was only level 5 on CA and guessed on a significant number of questions.

Feeling pretty discouraged. Didn't pass this sitting (my 1st attempt). I used the CA bundle but in hindsight, probably didn't give myself enough time to get exposure to different types of problems. I felt like I was completely unprepared though for the conceptual questions.

Anybody have any suggestions for November?
