I don't know. I actually feel like this exam is pretty unified in terms of the main theme compared to exam 5 and 6. But, agree that the questions are hard.

You still have like 2 prelims and they cost something like 350 usually. So, its probably not enough money to travel the world with. You should switch before you start working on the ASA modules tho.

I would stay AT LEAST 1 year to be honest unless you want to get out of Life or really want to move to another location. Even at big companies, rotations are usually 1.5-2 years anyways.
