I haven't taken Exam C, but based on the length and supposed difficultly, I'm placing this one at the top.

C > MLC > P > MFE = FM

There's a course on MFE as well at UIUC. If only there was a way to place out of taking the exams (besides VEE) through course credit...

I don't care what anybody says. Reading these posts about exam p, fm, mlc, mle, etc. Made me shit my pants really. I started studying and passed everything first time. Not saying it was easy, not saying i breezed by. But god damn you guys make it seem impossible. These threads and posts breed fear and incompetency. **** this whole thread. Study, practice, you'll be fine. These guys may have passed easily or they may have passed with great difficulty, it's got nothing to do with each and every different reader. Good luck and give it your best shot.

I'm an associate, I rarely post here and an not going to update my status etc. This is just my experience and my advice. If you excel at math and are confident in yourself after passing the first few exams, you'll be fine. I really enjoyed the exam taking experience, it was not a chore and I appreciate the concepts that I learned after being previously unfamiliar with them. If you excel at math you're golden.

The phrase "if you excel at math you're golden" does not really say much. If I was Capt. America I would dominate at every sport I play. Clearly I'm not Caps and clearly not everyone is good at math, therefore the exams are harder for some people than others.
