ASM #9: 23/35

Spring 2007 C: 25/34

Actual/real exam: Got a 10. I remember feeling good about which "rare" topics I got, must have gotten a bit lucky on the 2-4 I guessed on and had few calculation mistakes.

3rd attempt, first 2 with Actex which is a joke got a 4 and a 5.
Practice Exam Scores with guessing and in order taken.

TIA:
1: 20
2: 16
3: 26
4: 18
5: 24

ASM 11th Ed:
3: 21
4: 27

Actual Exam: Passed, only made 4 guesses which is less than all of the practice exams I think. I would say that the actual exam tries to trick you more often than the practice exams.

edit: I got a 10.

Wow, I got really worried when I saw people were taking their exam "tomorrow." I'm so glad that I have about 5 weeks until the exam!

I'm wrapping up the SOA 292 right now, and getting about 45% of those right without guessing. I took some of the practice exams a few weeks ago, so I will get to see how much I improve.

I'll edit this as I finish the practice exams. Also, note that I don't score completely on right/wrong. I use 3 outcomes:

-Right (got the problem right without help)
-Okay (knew how to do it and messed something up or needed a formula that I don't have memorized yet)
-Wrong (Clueless)

Then I use a weighting system of (90%, 67%, 20%) to come up with a final score.

The amount for each category is in the same order as above:

ASM PE1: 25 / 8 / 2 (81%)
ASM PE2: 14 / 8 / 13 (59%)
ASM PE3: 11/ 10 / 14 (55%)

FALL 05: 16 / 2 / 12 (60%)
FALL 06: 15 / 6 / 11 (61%)
SPR 07: 11 / 5/ 18 (49%) <--That blows

Practice Exam 1: 21 / 7 / 7 (71%)
Practice Exam 2: 14 / 8 / 13 (59%)
Interesting...What's the logic behind using 90% for right answers, and 20% for wrong?
