Couldn't get past 4.0 on Adapt, and passed tonight. I was shocked at how easy it seemed. There wasn't a single problem I didn't at least have a good guess on.

Hey guys! this is the first time I try this online-thread thing... I sit in Feb 24th and I'm honestly freaking out. I am currently level 5.9 on ADAPT and I want to try to get as close as I can to level 10. I've been reading a lot of people have passed with a lower level than 5.9 on ADAPT and I'm honestly so jealous. Very happy for the people that have passed, congrats! To the rest of us still struggling, I hope we can make it too ):

If you want to get a change of pace and look at some new problems, you could try the two free sample exams that we offer. We get quite a bit of good feedback on how these relate to the real exam.

TIA FM Seminar

These also have complete video solutions, with calculator tips, etc.

There is a third free exam offered on the CAS Student Central site:
CAS Student Central (must register)

Good luck!

Anyone know how likely it is to be asked non-computational questions like about any of the Theories for example?

How many would I normally need to get right in order to pass? I just scored 24 out of 35 on a GOAL practice exam.

Practice exams seem to have a few of those.

If you can consistently score between 24-28 correct on practice exams you will probably pass
