When should I buy 30 day ADAPT so it runs out just after the exam? I'm always too scared to lose access to it the day before the exam so I end up wasting some time, exam is Oct 27, should I buy it Sept 27?

9/27 would expire on 10/26, since the day of purchase is 1 day. But you would technically not need it on the day of the exam. Also, you should be well into practicing WA part of the exam at the end of September. Just my opinion.

You could buy it right now. When you buy it, you will get an email from support asking if you want to delay. Tell them when you want it to expire and they will have it start on the correct day and tell you when it will be. They made it very easy for me.

Thank you! That seems like a good idea

Hey guys, how long do you spend studying MLC with ASM? This beast is around 1400 pages and another part for practice exams. If I start from now with ASM, is it possible to take MLC in October???

Give it your best shot, imo. You can make a lot of progress by the time the registration deadline hits, and if you feel comfortable with where you are at that time, then go ahead and register

You don't really want to be doing ADAPT up until the exam. This isn't like other prelims where that was the go-to strategy. Have your subscription expire 2-3 weeks before the test and use the final stretch to do released SOA exams and ASM/TIA PEs. The only way to get comfortable with the WA portion is do constantly be doing them.
