Default Coaching Actuaries VS The Infinite Actuary

Which study source is better? Coaching or Infinite?

Thanks,

The stuff Coaching Actuaries offers is pretty good but they don't offer much on the P&C side.

I used ADAPT for FM and ADAPT + video lessons for IFM. They were great and I highly recommend them.

I didn't use Coaching Actuaries for P but expect it'd be perfectly good stuff.

Their greatest strength is the ADAPT product and it's good because of the volume of the question bank. I've heard that the question bank for MAS-I is small and so ADAPT is not as helpful.

So. Uh. Depends? Coaching Actuaries is good for P/FM/IFM and beyond that they don't really offer much anyway.

I would encourage asking this in response to specific individual exams, probably within the specific exam sub-forum that you are concerned about. Asking which source is better for CAS general exams is not helpful. Each exam has a different set of challenges, has a different set of problems, has a different author and study guide that is likely the optimal study tool. Good luck on your studies.
