Also just got the text, and I passed! Was not very confident about my result, as there were about seven questions I didn't know how to answer. Good luck to everyone!

Congrats to the passers!
For those of you that did pass, would you please share what you used as a study resource?

I failed and will need to re-take STAM, but I think I will need to use more than my TIA extention (Perhaps the asm manual?). Let me know what worked well for you. Thanks!

I used TIA, which I thought was pretty good until the short term insurance section. I'd still use TIA, but maybe with a month left until the exam, start ADAPT ASAP. And use ADAPT to practice the short term insurance questions.

I used the released SOA questions and ADAPT! I tried using TIA in the beginning to learn the material, but I didn't touch their practice problems and I didn't think their exams were helpful. I'd definitely stick to soa and adapt!

TIA has some SOA questions mixed into their practice questions. Those helped me out. I actually didn't even touch the SOA 300 or whatever haha. I didn't touch the TIA exams either. KD24 has it right though - SOA questions and ADAPT are probably your best tools for studying.

I second this for the most part. In my experience, TIA was great for everything other than conceptual short-term insurance questions, which were total crapshoots for me on the actual exam. I thought the computational short-term stuff between TIA and the new SOA problems prepared me just fine. Also @ashleymarp, I plan on posting a breakdown of my studying on the February 2019 thread soon to shed some additional light since I know this exam is still a major unknown for a lot of people.
