I can definitely appreciate this and I think it's fair to say that it's better than it has been in the past.

4 - 4.5 months sounds right to me too, I took LTAM in the fall and barely missed out.

Second time around, I focused more on practice exams and problems and less on working through the material

Hoping we start seeing solutions from TIA, Yufeng, CA...I'll feel much better comparing to the solution sets

Similar boat, I think 18/20 on MC and toughest scoring (no partial credit at all)...

It's also not in the style of the SOA to say "300% higher". None of the sample problems show an adjusted mortality in that way, and it's usually some "% of" SULT

I'm thinking of SRM in September but that feels far away so might start chippin' away at the FAP modules in the meantime

Don't remember the question number but I think when calculating the 2nd moment, you just have to use j = 2(i) and then do j / ln(j)* 2_Ax from the SULT
