Welcome to the TIA Exam 7 Review Course!

January 2nd, 2018

Welcome to the TIA Exam 7 review course.

I split the syllabus into 4 “Books”.  Books 1 & 2 have been updated from last year.  I’m working on the updates for Books 3 & 4.

Each book represents 2 weeks of material, except book 4, which is 3 weeks.

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  (ETA January 12)

Book 4 - Weeks 7,8 & 9 (ETA January 26)

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.

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.  My first trip of the year is January 17-20.
