I guess you could compare CT9 to the FAPs but CA2 is definitley harder than anything the FAPs have and CA3 is quite challenging to most (you can't actuallystudy for it).

The point I was trying to make was that the number of exams doesn't really matter, since the exam structure is different in the two societies. For instance, CA3 looks very similar to DMAC.
