You can revert back to IFM if you need to, pretty easily.
Oh wow, that's pretty generous. Is there any support page with details pertaining to that? I can't seem to find one.

And you just earned TIA $1K, started studying today. Skimming ahead, it's already looking like great fun, lol 🙃

How’s everyone’s studying going? I’m currently working through Section 7 in the Markov Chains portion of the manual. How does everyone feel so far?

I think I'm a little weird because I'm just going through the source materials now, and I'll get a 45-day ADAPT subscription later. I took exam C so that with courses from school I know the basics of sections A and B. Right now I'm reading through James for section C. I really like the applications with R because it helps to have concrete examples, and it helps with my coding abilities.

I am about half way through the Life Contingencies section. I would say that the difficulty is about the same as Exam C.

I'll be taking this one after passing Exam 5 this spring. I'm starting out a little behind all of you but will catch up!

I'm using ASM and ADAPT and just went through ASM section 1, which is just review from Exam C.
