I need some TIMED practice to make sure I am ready for 5A, but my company won't pay for Infinite Actuary. Will be a decent method to prepare for the test:

-Print out an old Exam 5 from 2008 or 2009.
-Give myself two hours to take the exam, skipping questions that are not on the current syllabus.
-Try to get 75% of possible points in order to "pass"

Yes. Why not go back further to older exams?

Give yourself this much time:

Time = #points applicable to 5A/total number of points x 240 minutes

Or, just give yourself 4hrs minus the length of time I am giving myself for each exam, since I am taking 5B only.
