I am happy to report that using TIA for both ILA LP & ILA LFVU helped me to earn 10s on both exams. I don't think the reality of being finished with actuarial exams has fully set in yet. Just yesterday it occurred to me that I will be able to watch football this fall without feeling like I should be studying instead (for the first time in years).
