Default November 2019 IFM Exam

I'll start the thread!

I'm using Coaching Actuaries to prepare.

Will instantaneous results be available for this sitting? How many is "a few sessions"?

Hey guys!

How long have you all been study for?

Ive been studying since July. Im using CA. Im only on chapter 4 of 11. Do you think my pace is too slow?

I hope to finish by late October, and spend 4 weeks doing practice exams. Do you think my chances are ok?

This is my first time using CA. For the P and FM I used ASM manuals.

Thank you so much!

You can use the CA schedule under Dashboard, IFM Study Schedule.

Don't know. I started in August and i review 10/11 chapters. However i studied most of them at school. If you are using CA i think it is fine because corporate finance chapters are shorter and easier too understand.

If I haven't started studying for IFM, is it better to take FM in Dec than to take IFM in Nov?
I failed FM in 2016 and passed P and C in 2017.

I'd say so. Significantly more material to cover for IFM than FM in my opinion.
