Is anyone considering starting the FSA modules? I think you technically can do it in any order. It would feel like you're still making progress.
I was thinking about the same thing but not sure if my company will reimburse for the FSA modules when I'm not an ASA yet..

If the exam is postponed to, say August, are they going to release the result before we can register for the October exam?

I really do not like this uncertainty....

That's a good point about reimbursements, but I suppose you could argue they will need to pay for it eventually. Maybe they are hedging their risk and paying now before they could potentially increase the price of the modules.. worth a shot.

Yeah, I'm concerned about the results too. So do we take the test in August for example, then keep studying and take it again in Oct to be safe? Ugh, that would be the worst.

In the wake of this Covid-19 debacle, figuring it might as well be worthwhile to keep studying to (hopefully) ensure a pass in the Summer.

What formulas are you guys memorizing with regards to Reserve methods? Is it worth memorizing all 7 of the ones provided in the TIA formula sheet? Realistically, I think retrospective, prospective, and the annuity/life insurance forms will cover most if not all scenarios...

Exam rescheduled for July 17th. Was planning on taking the afternoon off that day, so I guess now I won't have to use my PTO. Hopefully the world isn't shit by then.

What's everyone's approach to the adjusted date?

I've already gone through TIA once and am now spending time figuring out the sections I struggled with. I don't think I'm ready to start doing practice exams this early.

This is a real endurance test.
