Thanks for starting this thread.

Leading off with Specialty among the FSA exams due to work timing schedules this fall.

When is everyone planning on starting?

I'm targeting 250 study hours total with a start date of mid-June, with some judicious time off built in (two full summer weeks off, every college football Thursday and Saturday) to try and front-load and avoid the exhausting final month crunch that were an unfortunate part of my prep for the prelims.

I'm in.

What are y'all using for study materials? Just TIA / MATE or getting supplementary practice problems (I think the options are Condie and going to the MATE seminar to get the extra practice problems)?

I'm still waiting on results from Advanced sitting, but hoping to start reading some of the Specialty materials soon to try and get a head start.

I am in!

I am debating MATE vs TIA right now but will most likely just go with MATE since that is what I have used for the last 2 exams.

My company only provides 60 hours study time for 2 hour FSA exams so I might supplement it with 40 hours of PTO.

I'm in. I love to see that one of three topics on this exam was previously on Advanced!
