Default Daniel face-to-face seminar; pass rate

My face-to-face seminar for the C/4 exam in June is in Davis, CA, (outside Sacramento) on 4 - 8 May; see my website listed in my signature for full details on location, schedule, registration, and typical pass rates. The pass rate by those in my recent fall seminar for the October setting was---thanks to the hard work of the attendees---1.23 times the worldwide pass rate, about as usual.

It may take some time for it to click but when it does, the problems are absolute freebies. I'd recommend just learning them, unless you're really pressed for time.

While I agree with the two posters who said: if you've got time, do it.

Anecdotally, I passed without knowing anything about mortality tables. I found that the few problems I had in ADAPT could be done by using Nelson-Aalen and Kaplan-Meier estimators and using the range that those two fell in, or the nearest answer.

Still haven't started studying... Whoops

But starting in January after New Year festivities. 5 and a half months should be plenty.

Does anyone have the ASM manual study schedule? If I recall correctly, I believe I have seen something like that for MLC.
