Okay, thanks for the advice. I'll just keep reading the source and chugging along. I can't wait to be done with these extra requirements and just have the actual exams between me and FCAS.

Haha yes I can remember the feeling. Now I stress about FCAS exams being only offered once per year...

Haha, I can imagine. I put in a ton of effort into 6 since it was the last exam before ACAS, and I plan on putting a ton into 8 this fall (if I passed 6) since it could be my last fall exam. Then I need to put a ton of effort into 7 so I don't have to delay my FCAS by a full year. And then 9 will be my last exam, so I'll have to make sure I study enough for it too

Yes, I'll be there with you for 8 (but hopefully not 7, fingers crossed). Best of luck!

I heard you were supposed to study 100 hours per hour of exam so I studied 200 hours and failed with a 10-20%.
