I must've gone through 20 pages of this thread trying to see any feedback on the SOA sample problems; I didn't see anything. The SOA sample problems have a completely different flavor than what I'm seeing on Adapt. Curious if previous test-takers found them to be helpful or not really relevant to the new version of the exam. Thanks.

I tried to read through this thread as much as I could.

Given the new syllabus for MFE, does anyone know precisely which sections/chapters is safe to skip from ASM manual 9th edition?

Also what's a good source for Interest Rate Derivatives, which seems to have been added to the new syllabus?

Thanks!
