I already know I failed MLC. It was my 1st (and last) attempt and wow it was way harder than C.

In case you are interested, I'll teach my face-to-face LTAM seminar in early September. See my website http://www.actuarialseminars.com for details.

I'm in... with a year break of exam sittings. Besides watching lectures and solving problems on TIA, should I purchase ADAPT now or wait until finishing the lectures?

Adapt product for LTAM is not fully ready. You can buy it and do quizzes over all but 2 topics (Kaplan Meier/Nelson Alan, and long term insurance, about 10-15% of the material). But at this time (and for at least another month or so) you will not be able to do adapt practice exams. Just something to keep in mind. ADAPT is nice for practicing, so it could be worth it, but it is still in progress for the new requirement right now.

I think those topics will be ready in June, if I remember correctly. I really hope Kaplan Meier/Nelson Alan will be similar to those tested in Exam C.
