February 2012 exam
Standard affair as the last x number of threads.
I bought this manual last April. I work in an administrative department that is non-actuarial, so I'm not on the same time frame like 99% of the other candidates are. I am on my second pass through the material with ASM (I supplemented my studies with Finan's book for things I couldn't grasp on first try).
I am on the last two sections of the derivatives portion and it's tougher than I remember at some parts. Conceptually, most of it is easy.
I am taking a week off between tomorrow and New Year's to just recharge and prepare for marathon study sessions every night.
I am taking this 2/17/2012 at 12 PM which is the last possible time to take it in the testing cycle.
