Same boat, finally passed LTAM. I did the first 7 chapters already for STAM, but do you think it's really reasonable to finish all material in 7 weeks? I guess you plan to use the last month for practice exams?

correction, first 7 lessons from an old ASM C study manual, but it has 58 "lessons" and I'll have to buy something for the new material now that I actually passed LTAM

Looks like we will have instantaneous results for the October sitting!

“Beginning with the October 2019 exam; the preliminary test result will appear after the post-exam survey. A diagnostic representation is provided if the result shows you were unsuccessful in achieving the passing score.”

Nice. I was not expecting this because the Oct syllabus said instantaneous results would not be available. Apparently they edited that statement out of the syllabus.

Just passed LTAM, so on to STAM. Started the CA videos a week ago and just got through section 1. I'm finding the material pretty interesting so far, and am relieved to have a CBT exam again.

Perhaps it's based on availability with Prometric, but I really wish the SOA would move STAM further back in October. If it is scheduling-related with Prometric, they could flip the dates with FM and tweak the rest of the FM dates. The October STAM timing is brutal for people coming off of LTAM and/or folks involved with quarterly reporting.

Couldn't agree more! Later in the month would be significantly better.

Does anyone has taken STAM think that 2 months and some change is enough time to prepare? I found out i passed LTAM and have started studying for this but I have little background knowledge on the material and feel that 1 month to learn and 1 to practice will not be enough...
