I can fully relate to this (current issues was in quantile 4 for me)... and I think noone argues that having all the readings up as soon as possible is a good thing. However, in hindsight, and given the time constraints the choice made is probably the right one... given the fact that David couldn't finish everything focusing on the high value subjects was the right decision.
Yes i was a bit frustrated before the fact, but i manage to pass anyway. Overall the quality of part 1 readings was better then part 2... but for me it's difficult to ascertain whether this is because of the change in readings or because of the maturity of the material. My best guess is the first rather than the latter.
i can relate to this as well ... i recommended a colleague to take the test in november b/c by then all the materials should be available and available for review in time for the exam ... but i am happy w/ the result of course.
once again, i do appreciate all of BTs hard work ... and i am happy w/ the result ...
