Would have passed if not for the guessing penalty, of course.

I'm skipping 5 and going to 6 first, most likely.
I'm not working in pricing/reserving and my work aligns more with exam 6 material...

For those who just passed the first sitting of MAS-I, congrats! What did you find useful in studying? Mahler, ACTEX, TIA, other?

Solely used TIA. I would not have been able to answer the conceptual questions new to the syllabus (dimension reduction, etc) without Lee’s practice exams. He did a great job at predicting what questions they would ask. It was uncanny.

Lee’s the bee’s knees. Do TIA if you have the option.

Anybody know when they will post the pass mark? Got my official score in the mail and at a 51.5 which was a 5. Just curious how close I was.
