Soa 153?

I was just asking if there was a Soa 153 for the FM. I found some problems but it only had like 59. Is there another practice version thats bigger and includes the derivative part?

There's a separate set of derivatives questions, but those are the only two sets of questions for that exam. People use the 'SOA 153' to describe what the questions are like. There aren't actually 153 questions on that sample PDF.

The 153 is the number of problems. I have no idea how 153 can describe what questions are like. That being said, P has 153 problems. FM has 57. Each exam has a different number, so youll see it called the SOA (whatever number). They are the officially released problems. MFE is another one with <100 problems. MLC and C have a lot more. For C its called the SOA 289 or something like that, there are a lot.
