I used ASM's manual (by Cherry), and I really liked it. It has a lot of practice problems along the way, so when I got through the learning portion, I was pretty much ready to take the exam. It also teaches you a lot of calculator tricks that save time in doing certain calculations.

I would also recommend Coaching Actuaries at least for the adapt portion. It's a good way to check to see if you're ready for the exam, and you can get feedback from their coaches on questions you don't understand even after reading the solution.
