GH-Specialty Fall 2021

Hi All,

Started studying through TIA recently so wanted to start this thread. Anyone else prepping for this? Anyone know what the best study material is? I’ve heard PAK flash cards are great so I’ll probably pick those up.
Also does anyone know when registration typically opens for FSA Fall exams?

I took the last sitting but I have a feeling I failed so I already started studying. I’m almost finished making flash cards for all of the materials (combination of MATE flash cards and my own flash cards from the PAK manual and TIA manual).

I feel like for this exam I just need to make more and more flashcards, there’s so much info to memorize and I don’t think just memorizing the standard flash cards (i memorized MATE last time) is enough (this strategy worked for the other exams). Since there’s a little amount of questions on the exams, it feels like you have to force yourself to know more detailed stuff from the manual.

I’m in. Failed last fall and skipped the Spring sitting. Last exam, so hoping I can push myself and pass finally.

I’m using TIA (free 2nd attempt). I have my MATE outline and flashcards from the Fall 2020 sitting. I may just use those and remove the few cards that aren’t relevant anymore, or maybe I’ll spend the company’s dime and get the latest version. Haven’t decided yet.

Just got a pass for FV today, so moving on to specialty.
Historically I used TIA + Mate notecards to pass, but it seems that this combo might not be enough to pass?

When can we register for this exam?

I’m hoping soon. I’m anxious to reserve a seat at my local prometric. I don’t want to have to drive clear to the next one, which is a ways away.

What are your answers for Q3? I scored 35% on it but I felt like I aced it because its a classic question
