I would guess it would open up after the February exam sitting. At least that's what happened when I registered for MFE~

Finishing Section A of TIA this week (Loss Models). A little less than 5 months before the exam. Probably a little ahead of schedule but better than behind right?

Given the amount of material on this exam, especially compared to the other prelims, you'll definitely want to have as much time to retain all the info and do practice tests as you can. GL.

Oh yeah for sure. From my current schedule, I give myself two and a half months to review, do practice problems, and do practice exams.

2.5 months review?! Seems excessive.. I'd suggest 6 weeks tops. Go through the material at a steady pace the first time so you retain as much as possible

I usually do the same for my exams. Roughly half of my time is dedicated to review/practice problems. This was especially true for C (not by choice, I failed a few times). The excessive practice is what helped me. There is so much material in C that the only way I could personally retain it was by doing every problem under the sun - which takes awhile.

Each person is different, but I totally understand wanting a few months to review.

I think by this point everyone figured out what works best for him/her so to each their own. My ideal schedule thus far: two months of learning the material from scratch, one month of review, one month of straight practice problems. Hoping to do the same for C.

Yeah I've found I learn a lot better reviewing than learning it the first time around. If I don't know how to do a problem, I refer back to the lesson and learn that way. Eventually after so many problems, I've looked over the material pretty much all over again. I usually try to learn the material quickly and do all the practice problems and then review and do practice problems
