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.
