People are saying that SOA isn't accepting CPCU after December 2016. I am looking for that info but cannot find it. I can see that as being a big reason to take this over CPCU540.

Most people say they study about 20-30 hours for CPCU 540 and I think I can pass this in that amount of time. Because of the assignments, you are forced to learn the material in little chucks, so the final exam should be pretty easy after you do the assignments (at least that is how it was for the Stats VEE).
Hey Chomp. It is now several months later. How did it go?

This was the way to go. I got work hours to do this and it took two weeks to get through the assignments and take the final exam. I would say I put 30 hours into the whole process. The assignments really do prepare you for the final exam. I would recommend the additional textbook for extra practice problems and going through the assignments 2-3 times before taking the final. I ended up passing easily.

I second Jerry's post. I took 2 weeks to pass with an A, and I spent about 20 hours studying. I did not buy the book, because I found the online interface annoying with the statistics course. I just read through the summary documents and referenced the videos if I got stuck on a concept.
