Good luck to you, sir!

When do you plan on getting back in the saddle?

I am going to finish up the last modules (7 - 8), then start reading over some areas where I guess I could improve upon: multiple decrements and/or markov chains, Diversifiable risk, .....

I honestly know the material....it is just a matter of working under the pressure and time constraints.

I like the attitude/enthusiasm!

I'm already going over the Sample M.C. to see where my weak areas are. My plan is to work at minimum 30 problems per day, reading over 1 section per day where I could use some improvement, and then give myself 30 days for practice exams, WA questions, and review.

I recently failed MLC and I am furious.

Now I will use this opportunity to study harder and understand more, to gain the knowledge and apply the skills.

I have 2 goals for this year: MLC and STAM.

I am particularly excited about PA because this is where the market is going and there are a lot of applications.

We should work together and share the various understandings (point of views); I think this will only make our understanding stronger.

I went back to back 5's. I used the SOA Sample MC, Sample WA, previously written exams, all as study tools to help me get over the hump, but yet, I didn't improve. Anyone have any input as to what has helped them improve after a failed attempt, or what they will be using this time around to help get them over the hump?
