Default Statistics for Risk Modeling Exam

I am curious if there are any human beings that have actually started to study for the SRM exam. I know pretty much everyone at this point has transition credit, but I'm going to study the material to prep for the PA exam. So if anyone has actually looked at the material, could you comment on the difficulty so far? The exam is supposed to be 3.5 hours long, so I'm curious if it's supposed to be at the same level as Exam C/STAM, or if it's more like Exam P/FM.

The reason I'm asking is I want to judge how much time I need until December. The plan is to cover SRM material before PA, but I may squeeze in VEE Corporate Finance if I have adequate time. Thanks.

I just registered for SRM. I already have transition credit from VEE but my company will give me a raise for a pass and since I have to study the material for PA I figured it was worth a shot. I will do 30 days of ADAPT to prepare.

I am going to be taking SRM in January. It looks like it's not going to be too bad, then I have the PA I can take in the summer. I am hopefully going to knock out LTAM, SRM and PA in the next year.

Cool TIA SRM

TIA told me they're planning on launching their new SRM exam in Dec. 2018

Finished the intro and Chapter 2 of ISL textbook (Springer which is a syllabus textbook). Just realized there are no answers to all of the exercises/questions/labs, or am I missing something??

Also I wanted to add:
Happy to have purchased the study manual, but even happier to have decided to get the Actex textbook by Gan & Valdez. There are 7 chapters covering the syllabus, but more importantly, there are 1-3 chapter like labs with datasets for each. The labs are like mini projects in R which makes me glad I went out and bought this textbook which will be KEY to passing and preparing for the Predictive Analytics Exam.
