I am actively updating these notes to reflect the latest exam revision released on August 1st, 2022. The content on these pages will change dynamically as these updates occur. Additionally, I am working to migrate references and sources to their individual pages rather than a centralized page. For this reason, some sources may not be properly cited. I appreciate your patience and understanding as I work to apply these updates.
