If you have passed the Applied Statistics VEE or passed Exam C, then you will have credit for SRM. Looking at the syllabus, it seems I will need to learn some of the SRM material to do well on Predictive Analytics. I asked Coaching Actuaries about this situation, and they suggested this link:

After I take C in June, I'm planning on doing the following:
1.) Skim the SRM text: Regression Modeling with Actuarial and Financial Applications.
2.) Review SRM with Adapt
3.) Cover the PA material, whatever that may entail.

Question for y'all: am I crazy or did a previous version of the PA syllabus have October as the exam month and also have a suggested text? I thought I saw a text that basically was about manipulating stats with RStudio.
