Default Coaching Actuaries manual alone?

Since when CA stopped offering CA manual alone? It looks like it is bundled with ADAPT, plus option to include video lectures. Am I missing something?

Just took a look at it. Yeah that's really strange. I would assume a person going through the manual to learn the material wouldn't wanna be using ADAPT yet. I would contact Coaching Actuaries about only wanting the Manual.

The CA manual is not as thorough as ASM, but it's enough to comfortably pass.

Use CA if you need to pass ASAP.

I emailed them asking about the STAM, which appears to not let you get the manual alone as well. They replied back saying that they don't offer the manual alone so I would guess it's the same with the LTAM as well.

Have you asked if they could put a hold/freeze on ADAPT?
