That would definitely be extra motivation.. Good luck!

For the first time in my actuarial career, work is literally ruling my life. I've had 2 false starts on this exam now. I just reworked my study schedule though, and believe that I can get through all the readings with significant work on problems and memorization of stupid stuff with about 4 weeks to spare heading into the exam. So I ask those of you who are well ahead of me now... am I delusional and should I just bag it up for this sitting?

The Marshall paper is really boring, and repetitive to the point where it defines the same terms multiple times. It could be about a quarter of the length that it actually is.

I am in the same boat. It's not too late, still 3.5 months to go!

Yes! I'm going through it now and am having a hard time figuring out whether I should repeat myself in my notes (as the paper does).
