Updates January 24

January 23rd, 2017

The Manual and Lesson for ERA 3.1 was completely redone.  The new version gives examples to supplement the material in the paper - as it’s very dense.

The manual and exercises (new) for all of ERA 3 will be posted by this wednesday.

Unfortunately, creating new material for 3.1 meant that chapters 4.1, 4.2 and 5.4 are delayed a week.  I’ll have those up by February 1.

I’m cranking through the questions on the forum while I’m updating the ERA material - so keep it coming.

A reminder that section A of the syllabus is worth 70% of the weight of the exam - and specifically the first 2 weeks of material cover almost 1/3 of the weight of the exam (31%).


Welcome to TIA Exam 7 Review Course

January 5th, 2017

Welcome to the TIA Exam 7 review course.

I’ve just published Books 2 & 3.

For each paper, we have the following material to help you study:

  • Manual - explanatory document going over the concepts of the paper
  • Lessons - video lessons, uses the manual as reference
  • Exercises - Exercises for each paper to test understanding of the concepts
  • Past Problems - Solutions to past exam problems
  • Worked out Problems - 2-3 problems worked out for each paper on video

For the Review part of the course, we also have the following for each paper:

  • Review Notes - typically 4 page document reviewing the important concepts in each paper.  These are not explanatory
  • Flashcards - flashcards going over formulas and lists in each paper
  • Practice Exams - 3 practice exams

For ease of printing, we also prepare “Books”.  These each cover roughly a quarter of the syllabus.

Book 1 - Weeks 1 & 2

Book 2 - Weeks 3 & 4

Book 3 - Weeks 5 & 6

Book 4 - Weeks 7,8 & 9

Finally, the forum is the place to post your questions.  I’ll be reviewing it regularly for posts, and responding typically within a day or two.  Last year there was a delay because I was working on preparing material for the new papers.  This year only Shapland is new, and the material has already been posted.  I’ll also be posting any travel I have planned in advance - when I’m on the road there will be a delay of a few days in answering questions.

Book 4 - I’m adding exercises, and worked out problems on video.  These will be posted by January 25th.
