Getting ahead of yourself a bit. There is a Spring 2019 sitting first.

Haha, you're right! I was thinking fall because it's fall now. I sure hope I won't be taking it in the fall!

Anyway, I made a new one for Spring, since I still don't see one. And I don't see how to edit/delete.

Note that you can move a thread you create to another forum (and then move it back); and in the process of moving it, you have the option to rename the thread.


Might be more for future reference at this time, though.

I'm debating taking this for a third time or skipping, doing exam 5 and coming back. Though I have a fear of actually missing a reasonable sitting of this exam if I skip Fall 2019. If I do retake it, I'm going to completely prepare differently.

I keep seeing this idea being floated around, but I think it would be detrimental for people to skip a sitting and move onto another exam instead. In my opinion, I would rather not have to re-learn the material and would rather just grind it out. But I definitely understand the frustration.

I've seen multiple posts/comments about using the source material instead of TIA/CA. I think I am going to go this route for this sitting. Does anyone know if all of the books should be read completely or if some of them have only sections that are applicable to the exam?
