JANUARY 2017 P/1 THREAD
 
Hello friends,
I started this thread for those of us taking the p exam in January 2017 .I took it this November having studied only the SOA 152 questions and I failed.Surprisingly I was more confident about taking it again when I left the exam hall.I just started doing my research about resources and found out about the various outlets that can be used as practice material.
I started this thread for others taking the exam in January so we can share resources and exchange ideas.

Took exam p last Wednesday as well, but failed. I've been going at problems nonstop via adapt but I was only at level 4 so that probably explains it (mentor-type figure says I should be around level 7-8). I've also taken TIA's 4 free exams. But I haven't attempted any of the SOA 153 problems, so I'll probably be doing those as well this time around.

Hey , I'm sorry you didn't pass.Wish you better luck this time around.I would suggest a few of resources I gathered online which I'm using now.The highlight of most suggestions I gathered was practice practice practice so here they go.
1.Michigan state University actuarial p online simulation exam(free)
2.Actex questions
3.ASM questions
4.Guo Manual
5.Adapt
I would be posting a lot more as I come across them.Goodluck!!
I would be using adapt a little later tho since I want to familiarize myself with the material again .
