If so, how'd you do? I take it on the 17th.

Went well for me - hopefully for you too! The SOA questions were extremely helpful and TIA's exams seemed appropriate.

Also reading these forums kept me sane and let me know what to expect so thank you everyone! Now onto FM next month.

Im taking mine on the 17th as well. Really nervous.

How did everyone study on the last few days approaching your exam?

Wow, I basically repeated what you just wrote!

I'm just grinding out quiz problems on ADAPT now at this point, with my EL of 5.7

That actually clarified some questions I had but thought I shouldn't ask. Heh

Most likely gonna fail on the 17th (2nd attempt). Might just skip to FM.

lol i might not be in any position to give you this, but that sort of mentality is not generally a good thing. you have 3 days.... id say just go over soa 240 and look at all the solutions of what you dont get. then try and redo soa 240... and do them in few sittings. dont do one problem then go to facebook do another problem go to youtube... do 15 problems at once then take a break maybe. try building up to 30 problems. if you cant do a problem just go to the solutions and try understanding what they are doing.

Thanks for the advice. Haven't been studying for these exams seriously enough.

I think I may do the same. Might do one practice exam on the 16th. Current EL 6 after the last PE, but I think I just got lucky.
