Hey, First time taking an FSA Exam here. I plan to use TIA like I have with all the preliminaries. What is your all's general strategy for passing this? Expected study hours? Any information would be helpful.

We do TIA surveys on study hours and have found that most people fall in range of 200-300 hours of study time for ERM (80% of respondents). About 20% of people responded studying 300+ hours, with most people in that range studying 300-400 hours. Obviously quality of the study time is important too.

The general "rule of thumb" is 100 hours per exam hour, which would be 400. I think this is a nice goal, but many people studying for ERM are juggling many priorities (often work, family, etc.) and so most people land in the 200-300 range.

Hopefully that helps and good luck!

Your survey is about people who take or pass ERM?

"Take" ERM. We did the surveys for a few sittings a week or two after exam day, so at the time people filled it out they would not have known their exam result.

I'm sure it's not a perfect survey (response rates can be low because people are busy with work), but I think it's helpful as a general ballpark figure.

Looks like an expanded case study will apply to the three-hour Core section for everybody. Any word how this update will affect the Core questions compared to previous exam questions? (e.g., how many Core questions will reference the case study?)

https://www.soa.org/education/exam-r...ates-exam-erm/

"May 21, 2019

We want candidates to be aware that beginning with the Fall 2019 exam, the case study for the ERM Examination is being expanded. There is a new section of the case study that will be applicable to all candidates. Examination questions on both the three-hour core and one-hour extension-specific portions of the exam may be based on material in this new common section of the case study.

The case study will continue to include extension-specific sections that may be the basis for questions appearing in the one-hour extension-specific portion of the exam.

The Fall 2019 case study is expected to be posted approximately two months before the examination date."

LOL. Because the ERM exam wasn't hard enough.

Pass rates for the last three sittings:

Oct-2017 411 145 35.3%
Apr-2018 362 145 40.1%
Oct-2018 386 133 34.5%

These people are crazy.
