Honestly, considering that you've taken a probability AND a stats course, I would only recommend you complete and review the soa 153. You really should not have to prepare much if you understand what you've learned in school

My main weaknesses from Probability are in combinatorics, risk management (not too much was covered on this in the course I took), and setting and switching limits of integration in the general bivariate case. (Rectangular regions are easy, but the more general regions I need to work on.) I want to sort out these weak areas before I decide to take any practice exams.

Actex 2010 manual + SOA 153 exam questions + a math stat textbook for reference would be all you need to pass Exam P. However, if you want to earn a high score, such as 10 in Exam P, you may need to buy a ASM manual.
