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.
