Default Start studying now for the April 2018 sitting?

Just passed C and was wondering if its a good idea to start studying for mlc for april 2018 sitting. I know the syllabus will change middle of next year, so wasnt sure what I should do.... especially if I fail the april sitting.

LTAM (the exam that will replace MLC), seems like it's pretty similar MLC. It'll still have the WA portion so there's no avoiding that. It also appears the SOA is removing KM/NA and their variances to this new LTAM exam. I'm gonna study for MLC and just give it a shot. Even if I fail it's not like studying the material went to waste.

Same boat^ I actually bought the MLC Manual last year which I realized was a mistake since I decided to take C first instead. Now that I've passed C I'm not sure if I can study MLC with the same ASM manual... Also what materials are we supposed to use to study now for the new LTAM exam that replaced MLC??

The first sitting of LTAM will be in the Fall of 2018. The TIA seminar for LTAM should launch in May 2018, but we will be transitioning any leftover time remaining on MLC subscriptions into LTAM access.

You could certainly start now using existing MLC materials and simply focus only on the items that will be persisting to the LTAM syllabus since the LTAM syllabus is already available.

Congrats on passing C! I'm in a similar boat. I bought the ASM Manual for MLC last year. However, I don't think the syllabus for MLC changed recently so we should be fine.

My brother goes to USC btw lol

Also, all TIA MLC registrations for this month will automatically be extended to April 27th, the date of the Spring MLC sitting.

No need to wait until October 27th to get started.

Thanks! Yeah I'll just take a small break for a while and study for the materials on MLC that still persists in the new exam.
