Maybe that's the reason why SOA changed the exam system. They want us to pass exams without the help of study manuals.

Yes, materials are excellent!!! However, readings, EOM, FAP EXAM 1, and FA should be tied together. Then, candidates will go through most of materials in order to pass exams.

I don't think it's silly. Candidates have the right to know it's OK to skip readings, but at their own risk. This is not the issue of cheating.

Maybe SOA should make it official: "Module readings are optional". So, candidates know they won't be penalized by skipping module readings (make sure it won't come back and hurt anyone).

Wow...never thought it's this bad. I wonder how many of them got "PASSED" from the first grader. I believe that also has an impact on the grading system because of their high quality FA works.
