11 weeks out now. I think I actually know RBC, schedule F, and schedule P pretty well now. I'm gonna be working on memorizing all the IRIS stuff and grinding out problems the second half of this week.
It's the Exhibit of Premiums and Losses (Statutory Page 14). It has direct numbers and is similar to IEE part 3

When going through practice problems, what's your approach? Hand-write the answers like the actual exam? Type it? Just read it and move on?

Started hand writing them but then I figured... I don't think there's any advantage to writing by hand like there was for Exam 5 or anything. But I might not retain it as much if I read it and move on? Like Natalie Imbruglia I am torn.

Definitely do the calculations by hand. For the written response questions, sometimes I type, but I feel like writing is better tbh.

I'm a fan of practicing like you play as much as possible. Write them all out.

How's everyone's studying going? I slacked off a bit over the last weekend, but I'm getting back up to speed. I've pretty much finished going over all the IRIS ratio problems in TIA, so I actually feel like I know it pretty well now. I'm comfortable with almost all of sections A and B on TIA, so this is starting to seem very passable. Tomorrow or later tonight I'm going to start going through COPLFR again, and hopefully some of it will stick this time.

Well, how about being a parent? That going well at least?

Yeah! She's still alive after 6 weeks so that's something. Bouts of consecutive hours of sleep have been increasing over the last week so that's promising too.

Yay, for still being alive. That's good you're getting more sleep now. Still planning on sitting for 6 or pushing it back until the fall?

Yes. Good luck studying with a child. Now that we have foster children, there are SIX kids in the house. It's next to impossible to get much studying done. Late at night. It's hard to find the balance.
