Starting the IFM journey in three weeks! I am thinking on using the Coaching Actuaries manual. I really prefer a hard copy, but I haven't seen any good reviews on ACTEX or ASM manuals

March takers, what do you plan on using for study materials?

Whoops, now it's okay. Managed to see the new CA area through Microsoft Edge. Still buggy in Chrome.

I'm studying for IFM too! First exam that I'm going to tackle without taking the university courses. I'm using CA and I'm halfway through. Going to begin the corporate finance material over the December break. Happy studying.

Started studying in November using TIA. I used TIA for FM and P and really liked it over CA (I test drove CA for P and ended up using ADAPT instead of TIA's quizzes). I instantly regret using TIA for IFM, it's completely pieced together from MFE. I'm trying to save 60 days at the end of the lessons to use ADAPT.
