I'm ordering a manual this week to get a start, summer may impede a full study plan but I want to browse the material. I will probably start a coachingactuaries.com subscription around august. I've debated the CFA courses too, is this a manageable workload to do CFA and MFE together?

Summer is almost done. We are halfway through June and July is approaching fast. At first I was studying for MLC but stopped because I figured I didn't have enough time to master the material by October.

Yea still hasn't really sunk in that it's already almost July. I had the same thoughts on MLC, plus the fact that MFE is a nice transition from FM that I recently passed I wanted to keep the knowledge fresh.

I'm starting to study for MFE tonight. I'm going to write in November. I was just hired as an actuary so this is the first time I'll be working full-time and studying for an exam. I'm using a mix of TIA and Coaching Actuaries. If I have time I'll work the problem set from actuarial brew before starting on Adapt.

Yeah time goes by fast with a full time job,

I'm using ASM for now and using the CA study schedule excel sheet to keep a good pace.

You are ahead of me mcfei. I am only 1/2 way through reading ASM Chapter 1. Pretty straight forward so far though (mostly review).

Same here still in chapeter 1. Got caught up with selling my furniture and cleaning up my room. I sold all my furniture and got a new bed. I'm also searching for a nice desk from staples.com, found some pretty good deals there. I got the Coaching actuaries 180 day subscription.

Still in Chapter 1 but I think I've got enough of a lull in work to pass this in November.

Me too, I'm not sure what's going on but I can't understand this stuff for the life of me. I'm not sure what to do at this point.
