Here's list of study materials that I'm aware of.

1. TIA - Wasn't fan of Angelo's TIA 6, but there isn't really alternative for main study manual.
5. Fox Flashcards - Discontinued. Flashcards in PDF format still being sold. Not up to date with current materials but still has some relevant materials and had good reviews historically. I might consider picking this up depending on quality of TIA flashcards.
I didn't use the TIA flashcards, but I wouldn't expect too much since I heard numerous complaints about them on the Spring 2018 thread.

CC is crazy good, but the TIA practice questions are good too. TIA PE #2 is harder than the real thing.

Bkm is an easy read. I’d start with that first if you’re not sitting for 8

Tia flash cards were meh. Not terrible but had some typos and some cards could have been structured better.

Seems like BKM 10th edition is still the newest edition. I guess it's unlikely that 11th edition will be released soon and CAS decide to use 11th edition for 2019. Actuarial library at my work has like BKM 6th to 9th, so I was like wow that's a lot of revisions!!
