I got an early start on this one because it's a bear and holidays/work will probably disrupt my study time. So far everything is straightforward enough but I'm only through premium calculation and know the later topics are much more difficult. Good luck to all of us!

I'm using CA and Actex. I polled some friends and the consensus was that CA is better at teaching you to answer from first principles (which is better for written answers) but that TIA is better at teaching you to recognize and apply shortcuts (which is better for multiple choice). Presumably we need to be able to to do both, so I hope to gain that knowledge from Actex.

I wouldn't recommend Actex by itself. Content raven is buggy in the browser and I'm not allowed to install the proprietary software on my work laptop. The manual itself leaves you to fill in the blanks a lot - at times it feels like studying a verbose formula sheet.

I'm using Actex and CA for this. Actex mainly to get the concepts and work on topic-related questions - and also for the WA component. CA mainly to get the MCQ portion of the exam down.

My first attempt at LTAM! Let's do this!

I am waiting on October results, then I may be in here. Hoping to not be but this exam is brutal.

I am using CA and ADAPT. I thought it prepared me pretty well for the October sitting.

Officially over halfway through the CA material! Aiming to wrap it all up by early Feb and just do practice problems b/c I'll lose study hours as work ramps up in the spring.
