Question To finish ASA before changes, do C or FAP FA first?

So I've been lazy as snot the last couple of years after each of C and FAP FA kicked my butt three times in a row. But I'm finally waking up re: the curriculum changes.

It looks like FAP won't change much if at all. So does that mean I should make passing Exam C my #1 priority, and then worry about FAP FA after that?

Based on this schedule you will have to take the Feb exam C. Depending on how ready you are you might also want to juggle FA during this time, or take it right after C but you'll have to make sure you pass on first try as you will not have time to wait for grading and do retake.

Personally I think the key to take exams now isn't about the contents changing but more about the req for ASA changing. If you do not get these done during this time you'll have to take 2 more exams to get your ASA, which doesn't sound too enjoyable.
