Default What would you recommend to use as study materials for the SOA exams?


I passed all three levels of the CFA exam and am now considering beginning the Actuarial exams.

Your exams are much different and I would like to inquire what you would recommend I use as preparation material for the exams along with the order of the exams that I should follow to give me the best chance of success.

I was planning on going in this order for the first three: FM, MFE, and then P

I was a math and finance major at Wisconsin, but I haven't taken a math course in 7 years.

How long would you recommend preparing for each exam?
What study material would you recommend?

Any guidance that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I am also studying for P. I was an econ and math minor, but I haven't taken any math course in over 10 years...I have been using TIA, but am still struggling. Pretty much learning it all over again. Have you sat for any of the exams? or passed? why are you taking the exams in that order?
