Does anyone know the best way to get the 25 exam validated credits for PD ASA? Also, how possible is it for a student with only 5 exams and no conversion credit to complete PD ASA before June 2007?
thanks!

here's the list. i don't know what the best way would be. depends on your area. if you're in health then you could do the life and health qual seminar (which your employer would probably like you to do anyway) then try to pick the other 7 points (which would probably mean getting 10). of course if you're pension you'd want to get an EA

its not easy to get those 25 credits quickly...

huh?

PRM and FRM exams are much easier than CFA... and that would give you 30 PDs...
PRM consists of 4 small exams that you can take all at once, it's computer-based, multiple choice (www.prmia.org)
FRM is offered once a year in november, some of the material is the same as for PRM (www.garp.com)

Are you making these assessments from personal experience? I happen to have take these exams, and I think the CFA is much easier than the topics on the FRM and, to a lesser extent, the PRM. Problem is that they drag the CFA out over 3 years for the 3 levels. It is impossible to start the CFA now and complete the CFA before the June 2007 cutoff for PD.
