The topics in MLC/MFE build more, so you can still intuitively figure things out, but with C, a lot of the topics don't depend heavily on each other. So knowing how to do KM/NA problems won't help you with credibility and vice versa.

SOA 307 is really helpful, don't spend too much time on Mahler, too hard compared to the exam. Good luck guys, don't give up!!
any help with which quizzes to focus on?
