I am also wondering the same thing. Is 5 weeks enough to prepare for this? I can honestly probably study for 115 hours in these next 5 weeks. I have 3 exams passed and have only worked for a P&C insurer for a little over a year. 3 months as an intern and 10 months as an actuarial analyst.

A timely reply would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Is it possible? Yes, but a lot depends on your study habits and ability to synthesize the material. Some of the material might be familiar, but I'll bet that a lot won't.

The Online Courses are a bit different from the Exams in that there is often some level of minutia to attend to in order to understand which of the MC options is the *best* answer. This isn't necessarily a deal breaker, but you'd likely need to nail everything else in order to pass.

Note that you can sign up now for a later window. Having a bit more time can help you better assess how well you're acquiring the information.

Best of luck.
