Yup.


Not since exam 4 did I feel like there was too much material to really get comfortable with everything. But for that exam it was the application of the foreign topics that made it hard.

This one gives me a false sense because I can check my notes and think, oh that's not hard, but recalling it verbatim from memory is not so easy.

Reasons for exemption from filing SAO:
Small Company
Nature of business
Under supervision or conservatorship
Financial hardship

Question: The qualification for being a "small insurance company" is given as $1M of total premium and $1M in total loss and LAE. But hasn't that standard been raised since the paper was written? It's now higher I think.

Probably last thing I should worry about but does anyone know if I can use pen to write my answers for the exam?

Yes, most people I've seen writing this exam use pen. Pens write faster and you're not going to want to spend time erasing anyway.

Don't know about everyone else, but I feel that I'm starting to hit that wall...just trying to get through this next week and stay sharp/focused. At this point I really feel that I know all I'm going to know - let's hope its enough!

Plan to go over all CC review questions and take 2017/2018 exams as mock for the remaining 6 days.
