Exam FM/2 December 2017 Thread
 
Creating this thread for the December sitting. Recently sat for October and noticed nobody ever created a thread that we can all complain and think on...:viola:

Thanks for starting this tread! I am exactly a month out and need to step it up. :study: How is studying going for everyone else?

Good idea starting a thread for this exam. Feel free to post any questions about the exam that you have. I'll try to remember to come back regularly and check.

One month left - perfect time to step it up a notch and start the Study Strategy Boost!

You might also like my Daily Exam FM questions Facebook group. I've just recently created it and will start posting questions next week. I post them as a poll so that members can select their guess to the solution.

Is anybody here using the 12th edition of the ASM manual? If so, how are you guys finding the practice exams?

Hi guys!

I am about a month in studying for FM and am using the ASM manual along with Adapt. I was just wondering if anyone had any advice for what kinds of problems are likely to appear the most on this exam. Also, if anyone has already taken this and subsequent exams I would be interested to know if any of these topics are revisited in later exams.

Thanks

Hey!

If you look at the syllabus it gives you a general guideline as to what % of questions will be related to each topic. I'm not sure how accurately the SOA follows those percentages though so you probably don't want to rely on them too much.

The topics on FM are definitely used in future exams.. MFE builds a lot on the FM topics and the concepts learned in FM are used throughout your actuarial career too.

I know this is posted in a lot of different places, but I want to reiterate how great the Coaching Actuaries ADAPT and Review for FM is treating me for my last minute cram review. To learn the material, I used ASM. This was an excellent manual for learning the content and equations the first time through. However, I am a visual learner and the diagrams CA provides in the explanations have been really helpful in strengthening my understanding of everything. I was looking at a lot of the offered last minute reviews, and I am glad I chose ADAPT and Review FM.

FM Advice
 
Hi all,

I am sitting for FM in December. I took it once before and failed but this was before they made the syllabus changes. Has anyone taken it after the new changes have been made? The syllabus makes it seem like an entire section is just concept based not calculation based. Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks!:santa:

Anyone take the December exam yet? If so, what did you think?
