For those of us with transition credit for SRM, the SOA sample questions are released:

https://www.soa.org/Education/Exam-R...-exam-srm.aspx

Since this is a prerequisite to PA, all of this will be assumed and not in the modules. But from the 28 questions (yes, only 28) it doesn't look too simple. However, they appear focused on the predictive portion of the material. I was hoping VEE Applied Stats would be more helpful but there are only a couple related questions.

That is not necessarily true. The SOA's website says "•The PA e-Learning modules provide support designed to enhance candidates’ studies from the SRM Exam and to clarify the SOA’s expectations regarding a successful PA Exam submission"

To me, this says that the modules will go over what we need to know with respect to SRM. And just because the PA exam assumes SRM knowledge, does not mean that we will be required to use it.
