I imagine you'd know since you've been taking exams while working already?

I believe I can flyyy

No, you'll keep having to going on the AO to answer silly questions which can be very stressful

It's literally harder to get a username for the AO than it is to answer some of your questions about CAS exams.

What about your first annual raise?
What is a typical percentage for that?

Does 10 percent sound realistic?

You're all over the questions.

I tend to think this would vary dramatically based on things like

1. How well you were able to get a higher starting salary
2. How you performed during the year
3. The sorts of questions you ask at work

I guess the right way to interpret my questions would be:

How much did YOU receive on your first annual bonus?

Hence, if I can get 10 people to answer then perhaps the average would be a good estimate?

If only there were already some sort of poll on the outpost asking this question. Too bad there isn't a search function where we could look this sort of thing up.

If you can't find the answer to that question, I don't expect you to pass any of the exams, so it's moot.

What if I take 2 exams per period?

So now is almost May. If I start studying now any chance that I pass MAS-I and Exam 5 both on October? That's 5 and a half months of study time.

Has anyone tried that? How did it end?
