Default Too late...?

With the holidays and all the time off work that comes with, and in conjunction with a bunch of PTO I have saved up, I am thinking of joining the fray on this one. I have studied the first section (Severity, Frequency, and Aggregate Models) a couple times now but had to bail every time due to bad MLC results. I am sure I can burn through that in a week. The rest is new but the STAM study schedule says its *not impossible*. What do you guys think as troops that have been in the trenches this entire time? It seems STAM is more 'mathy' and as an Applied Mathematics major, the seems more like my ish.

Thanks so much for sharing, and congrats on passing with a 10! I can never imagine myself to pass this exam with just 3 months of preparation...

Have been putting a lot of time in over the holiday; hopefully some others are doing the same! I also thoroughly enjoy the new layout of the CoachingActuaries LEARN platform. Online manual, followed by video lesson, sometimes followed by a practice question. Could possibly use more practice questions, but I guess that is what ADAPT is for.

I am working a problem on B-S credibility where policyholder 1 has 2 data points and policyholder 2 has 3. So it is not uniform, yet the problem went on to calculate mu as x bar and not the z weighted x-bar. Why is this?

I wonder if Coaching Actuaries team has collected feedback for this exam? I'm curious about:
- the exam's level of difficulty vs ADAPT
- exam pass rate at different earned levels
Thank you!
