"Dr. Perry, I recently finished your VEE Applied Statistics through ACTEX. I just wanted to reach out and say thank you! Having the flexibility of taking the class at my own pace with my work schedule was huge for me. The structure of the class had a great flow to it and your instructor notes were extremely helpful for learning the material with a nice touch of personality that a textbook lacks. As I'm pushing to fulfill all of my ASA requirements before the curriculum change, I'll be taking both Economics and Corporate Finance VEE's. I'm looking forward to these much more after taking your applied statistics course. Thanks for putting together such a great class!" -- VEE Applied Statistics Student

NOTE: We at ACTEX recommend that students NOT on track to get their ASA by June 2018 consider completing their VEE in Applied Statistics prior to July 2018. The current Applied Statistics VEE will give you credit for BOTH the new 2018 VEE in Mathematical Statistics AND the new SRM (Statistics for Risk Modeling) Exam.

Remember that for Applied Statistics, Time Series and Regression Analysis: Credits earned prior to July 1, 2018 may be claimed at any time and converted to VEE Mathematical Statistics and SRM Exam credit.

Candidates seeking to attain an ASA or CERA prior to the July 1, 2018 transition, please note that the last date to submit VEE candidate credit applications is April 27, 2018.

Thank you all, ACTEX appreciates the opportunity to be of service. Please visit our "2018 Curriculum Changes" page for more information and additional resource links: Click Here

Hello Coffee, these are all on-demand courses, so the pace of the course is really up to you. It's about how much time you have to devote to the course and of course, your aptitude for the course content. These courses are designed to approximate a one-semester college-level class.

That having been said, we at ACTEX will no longer sell these courses after 5/31 because we feel that is the latest that someone could enroll in the course and pass it before the SOA June 30th deadline to report a passing grade for VEE credit. So, while some get through it faster and some take it slower, it stands to reason that one month is the very general answer to your question. I hope that does it for you. Thank you, Alan

For any one curious, took me close to a month. 5 days for module 1 (yes it shouldn't have taken me that long) and 5 days to study for the final; all while working a full time job among other prior engagements I had during the weekends - so I guess just adjust the time frame to your particular situation
