Why not just look up the 2018 exam?

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.
2. Crystal Clear - Seems new. I think I read somewhere this was good supplement to TIA.
3. RF Cookbook - Steve is planning to release this for 2019 exam.
4. Goldfarb - Seems obsolete now.
5. Fox Flashcards - Discontinued. Flashcards in PDF format still being sold. Not up to date with current materials but still has fair amount of relevant materials and they had good reviews historically. I might consider picking this up depending on quality of TIA flashcards.
6. ACTEX - I don't think ACTEX gets any love after prelims.

edit:

7. MathTiger: Seems like Practice exam set only.
I noticed All10 was left off this list. Does anyone actually use All10? I never have personally ... but was curious since the only other full option is TIA.

Curious of anyone else who reads all the source material if they are going the CC or All10 route over TIA? I feel TIA often regurgitates the source material anyway. It sounds like from other posts CC is a supplement and not a full manual, unfortunately.

... Too bad no Casual Fellow Exam 9 ... really liked CF guide for Exam 7.

Appeals windows opened for the other exams. Guessing the examiners report will be posted today.

Where do you see this? Maybe I'm having caching problems, but I can't find anything.

I tried All10 for CAS 5 and CAS 6, and it just didn't work for me.

Checking in, and probably won't again until October. In the meantime, I'll be relishing my summer freedom for the first time in years.

(actually, I guess I do have a question: Who/what is MathTiger? My quick googling gave me nothing, but I'm curious to see what the study materials look like)
