Spring 2017 it is. Reminding myself how much I hate this exam so that I pass it and move on. May we all suffer and survive together.

Did you buy your own copy?

And if you don't buy it or don't get it from the CAS library, I'm assuming TIA has enough coverage on it?

I'm going to buy a copy for sure but I've gone paperless for the past few exams and I'd like to continue that trend if possible. I guess I could pay for a scanning service

I've read mixed reviews on whether TIA alone is sufficient so I'm going to err on the cautious side and read the source texts as well
