I would not have handled studying all day every day very well. Spacing it out worked best for me, although other than that, 25 full days wouldn't be bad.

Wow that's impressive. Were you also studying for MLC at the same time? How many hours did you spend on C? Mind sharing your experience in this thread? http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...d.php?t=223076

I worked through all problems in the C/4 ASM manual in August. Then I worked through all the problems in the MLC ASM manual in September. I didn't track my hours, so I can't say exactly how much time I put into it. If I had to guess, I'd say around 250 hours to get through the manual and then 50 hours reviewing practice exams.

Obviously she had knowledge when she claimed 0 hrs for P. My shoddy B.S. demanded a lot more studying for P and thereafter.

As a person currently studying for C, I'm even more impressed and astonished at the OP's accomplishment.

If you're working full-time, this stretches out much longer though.
