Default Which exam should I take next

Hi everyone,

Now that we all know that exam S is coming as the next change in the CAS track I was just wondering what everyone's opinions were on taking an exam the first time it is given. How do you know what to study? Are there even any study manuals out that can help you prepare for S? Should I just go ahead and take exam 4 first while waiting for the exam S stuff to settle down a bit?

Thanks in advance,

Sit for Exam 4 first.

Not to let the Exam S "settle down" but to allow the study guide makers time to get their material together and debugged.
