Default ATP-CTP Course Sufficient for ATP Written?

Has anyone recently taken an ATP-CTP training course, which is now a required prerequisite to take the ATP multi written?

Was the training provided in the ATP-CTP course sufficient to pass the FAA written?

Or, did you feel it necessary to supplement with self study, such as Sheppard Air?

Absolutely not. Buy Sheppard Air study guide and use it.

CTP provides no written test prep. Waste of time and resources

The subjects covered in the CTP are listed in 61.156. They have almost nothing to do with the knowledge test questions. At least one CTP course includes Sheppard Air's study course in their fee.

Default CAE

Actually came here tonight to ask this exact question. I'm slotted for CAEs course in a couple weeks and was wondering just what all it was going to consist of.
