Default Statistics for Risk Modeling Exam

I am curious if there are any human beings that have actually started to study for the SRM exam. I know pretty much everyone at this point has transition credit, but I'm going to study the material to prep for the PA exam. So if anyone has actually looked at the material, could you comment on the difficulty so far? The exam is supposed to be 3.5 hours long, so I'm curious if it's supposed to be at the same level as Exam C/STAM, or if it's more like Exam P/FM.

The reason I'm asking is I want to judge how much time I need until December. The plan is to cover SRM material before PA, but I may squeeze in VEE Corporate Finance if I have adequate time. Thanks.

I just registered for SRM. I already have transition credit from VEE but my company will give me a raise for a pass and since I have to study the material for PA I figured it was worth a shot. I will do 30 days of ADAPT to prepare.

I am going to be taking SRM in January. It looks like it's not going to be too bad, then I have the PA I can take in the summer. I am hopefully going to knock out LTAM, SRM and PA in the next year.
