Considering pages are unlimited, there's no such thing as overly risk-averse. You don't want to potentially waste hundreds of hours of your life because a bozo may screw up photocopying your exam.

Exam 8 Study Kit

How long does it take to receive the study kit once you order it? It's been a week since I ordered mine and it hasn't come yet. I don't think CAS has a tracking number for it either.

If you don't think you can pass 10 exams, then pick health.
Else, pick P&C.


btw, the P&C exams are much harder than health but I'm sure you'll be rewarded if you do pass.
