I reviewed my entire stack at least once before taking another exam. Sometimes I flipped through quickly and on some questions took more care in thinking through the core ideas, trying to relate the math to the different ways info can and was given between other questions.
I'd like to echo this sentiment, although I don't destroy as many forests as dkamka. I thoroughly review every quiz and exam and write down "moral of the stories" in gel pens next to the problem that emphasize what I got wrong. This could be anything from a stupid calculator mistake to a formula...whatever helps me. Then I keep a smaller notebook, organized by material, of these moral of the stories. One subsection may take up a page or two of these ideas or formulas that I got wrong. I review them continuously and learn from my mistakes. I haven't failed an exam since.

No, you get credit for STAM and Math Stats by passing C. You need to get credit for the current Applied Stats VEE to receive transition credit for SRM and Math Stats.

That's not true. Totient(43) got it right. Either Applied Stats or C will grant full credit for Math Stats. I included a link to the transition credits page and the page summarizing VEE changes with relevant text quoted below.

Applied Stats -> Math Stats (full credit) + Exam SRM
Exam C -> Math Stats (full credit) + Exam STAM

VEE Mathematical Statistics – While this is a new component without a direct counterpart in the current system, there are two opportunities to gain transition credit. Candidates who have not earned transition credit (which may be claimed later in the case of using VEE Applied Statistics credit) by July 1, 2018 must earn the credit through an approved VEE course.

VEE Mathematical Statistics – This is a new VEE topic. Candidates without transition credit (from either VEE Applied Statistics or Exam C) must complete this requirement. Courses offered prior to July 1, 2018 can be approved for credit and credit earned prior to that date from an approved course can be claimed.

how's it going y'all? making some decent progress? I've started going back through TIA videos. I'm about to start Aggregate Models (A.6). I'm also doing a Mahler PE at the end of each week without notes to keep all the topics somewhat fresh in my mind. Got 12/20 on PE #1 last weekend.

also does anyone have an idea on how long the SRM exam is gonna be? Is it gonna be an "actual" exam or will it be significantly easier. I ask this because a VEE is giving credit for it, and I know VEEs are much less intensive.
