If you have your own proctor (FSA), you can schedule at their convenience and could complete it even faster. Personally, I feel I could have done the stats VEE in a week or less.

It took me a little less than a month but I read ALL the material and went over all the practice problems and redid all the assignments.
To answer your question, yes. You can start December and finish if you study hard. You can do anything you set your mind to

Yes it is possible/ practical.
Now, I am not sure about Corporate finance though. I heard it is more extensive. I would project it would take me the same amount of time but with considerably more studying and focus. Anyways, how's the studying going for MFE?

I did CPCU 540 for the corporate finance VEE. It wasn't bad at all, a 2 or 3 days of studying prior to the test. There is enough FM material (zero coupon bonds and time value of money type stuff) that you can breeze through pretty easily on minimal study time.

Same here,
I have a specific day in mind but I want to finish it before September ends. Some sections are easier than others though. Normal probability plot? Which manual are you using? @immocardo, I still haven't figured out when I should take it. Would you recommend it? How long did it take you? Can it be finished in a week?

It's the ggplot? qqplot? where you plug 5 points on a graph and determine if normal distribution is a good fit

Question ASM 12.6
#12.6
A stock's price follows a lognormal model. You are given: (i) alpha=0.15 (ii)delta=0.02 (iii)sigma=0.3 Determine the smallest period t > 0 such that the probability that the stock price at t is less than the initial price is less than 5%. I am not sure if I understand the solution to this problem s_0*e^(0.085t0.3sqr(t)1.645)>s_0 would this be the set up? Thanks guys
