Default Best Study Materials for Course 3 Exam?

I just took the course 2 exam, and although I'm not sure that I passed it, I'm going to go ahead and start studying for the course 3 exam. What products or materials did people find to be the most useful?

By the way, I'm referring to the SOA version.

Definitely ARCH. You cold get by on it alone if you had to. It explains everything great. Not a very large number of problems to work, so you probably would want to buy another source for that if the past exams aren't enough for you. The ARCH people are always very fast at responding to emails.

BPP....no need for any text books as this manual goes through the entire syllabus fairly thoroughly...the difficulty of practise questions are not that high though (ie. SOA questions are much tougher than their practise questions)...having said that, if you use BPP along with the released SOA exams it will be more than enough
