Using 16th Edition. "My" chapter 36 is the same as yours - Hypothesis Tests: Graphic Comparison. So I guess I cannot skip that one (damn it).

"My" chapter 59 and 65 are supplemental questions, so I guess we will be skipping the same chapters and I will put 36 back on my schedule.

Thank you for your help, I appreciate it!

Back from beercation so I guess it's time to jump right in.

My plan of attack is to read loss models & the other readings for the next month or so, then buy CA manual and ADAPT and work through that until end of April. Then May and June will be endless practice questions/exams.

Dont know if this would be the right place to ask (I am new to the forum) but what do you guys think about the average time for one to study for exam STAM. I will take IFM in a couple days and plan to take STAM in June sitting.

Is it too ambitious or achievable ?

Do you have prior knowledge on the material and do you work full-time while studying ?

I took MLC before and it helped me a lot, so I was already very comfortable with the exponential and uniform distributions. I do work full time but had study days. Just have to plan things out and you should easily be able to fit it in.

I used TIA and ADAPT. ADAPT is great for the insurance-related topics, and TIA helped me thru the C-related concepts on STAM.

So your situation is a bit similar to me, just that I did not have mlc yet (just got some exposure to distributions in P). May I ask if you take C or the new version STAM ?

Does anyone know if preliminary pass/fail will be available for this sitting? Or will we have to wait 8ish weeks to find out?
