Dkama, what are you talking about??

Are you saying you are taking practice exams six months out? If you're sitting in Feb, you're in the wrong thread...

Health, I've had the ASM since October and I'm not a huge fan so I looked into the Mahler material. He has the frequency distribution content posted for free and looking through that, IMO, his approach is much better suited to those that want to learn the material as opposed to just learning shortcuts.

The problem with ASM is that it teaches you how to take the test rather than the content on the test. Normally that's great, but in the world of the SOA, where they can easily obfuscate these problems and render them less recognizable, knowing the content is much more valuable. Again, just IMO.

I'll be going with Mahler.
