I didn't know if it had to be done by some official. Threads for next exam sitting usually already there once I start my studying lol.

Never took S but I took LC and ST when it still existed. OC1 took back in 2012 which I'm sure they made it harder by now. It used to be in the old Exam 5 prior to 2012. I found them as a break to core exams since I couldn't pass 5 in 2011 and 2012. My hope this will be my pass sitting.

Which manual is everyone going to use for this exam?

Is Werner good enough for the ratemaking portion?

My plan is to print out all the source material and get it bound at a copy shop. Then I want to do the same with the Mahler manual. Then I'll finish it off with TIA.

By source material you mean the "complete pdf...?"

I'm using TIA right now and reading source text as I go along. I've already taken this exam twice so TIA is new approach too studying since using source text alone is not enough. I need someone to lecture me and of course organize all exam questions so I know what I'm up against this time. I plan to use Actex and Mahler as back-up but TIA is my main study aid this time.

So for the first two sittings, you relied solely on the source text?
I looked into Actex manual and it is just the source text...
