Default 2018 Exam 7 CF/RF Joint Online Seminar

Hi everyone!

For the 2018 sitting, Michael McPhail (Casual Fellow) and I (Rising Fellow) are teaming up to jointly offer an online seminar for Exam 7.

We're excited about this joint offering and believe together our study material will make for a great, comprehensive online seminar to help you prepare for Exam 7.

The online seminar will contain the following study material from Casual Fellow (CF) and Rising Fellow (RF):
  • CF Study Guide (paper outlines, practice problems and past CAS problems)
  • CF Online Videos (both paper review and problem review videos)
  • RF Cookbook
  • RF Practice Problem Bank
  • RF High-Level Summaries
  • RF Flashcards (new for 2018)
  • CF & RF Practice Exams (2 each, 4 in total)

All of the study material will be digitally available on a learning management system and you'll have the option of also getting a physical copy of the Rising Fellow study material that will be professionally printed.

We plan on having the 2017 study material up and ready to go by the end of October for those who like to start early, with the completed 2018 versions available the first week of January. The joint online seminar will be sold through the Casual Fellow website.

Those who don't pass and need to retake will get the updated material for the following sitting at no extra charge. If you used the Casual Fellow or Rising Fellow seminar for the first time in 2017, you'll get access to the joint seminar for 2018.

Please let Michael or I know if you have any questions.

In the coming weeks we'll have more details and information on our websites, so stay tuned.

Thanks!

Just popping in to say that the RF+CF combo was the best for this exam.

If the CF Study Guide is 375 and the cookbook is normally 300, is the remaining 800 for the online seminar basically just covering the videos then? I'm not usually big on videos, so trying to decide if that route is worth it

Great question. In addition to the CF guide (which includes original problems and two practice exams) and the RF cookbook, the joint online seminar also includes the CF videos and RF practice problem set, practice exams, high-level summaries, and flashcards. The items in bold make up the remaining difference. Hope this helps!

I plan on getting this once the 2018 version is available, but damn... $1500 is steep!

Is there a way to purchase just the CF or just the RF material? Turns out my employer will not reimburse for both.

Another question: does the material have a digital copy? I've never been one to drag around a bunch of paper. If I could view everything on my computer, that would be ideal.

Thanks for your help!
