Yay that is great to hear! I just passed MLC as well and recently started MFE material with TIA and it is like a breath of fresh air. I keep waiting for it to get worse! It does help they moved FM material to MFE but either way there is about half the material of MLC. MLC made me want to .

So registration for the November MFE exam closes October 10. Does anyone know when it actually opens for registration? I would like to get a weekend time slot so as to not miss work at my current, non-actuarial job.

Like a month before the registration deadline.

July Registration opened in April, so November's should open next month.

Did not receive a passing score this last attempt. Going to give it another shot this time around.

I don't want to just pass MFE. I want to CRUSH MFE.

I already went through all the material for my last attempt.

How should I restart studying for this stuff? Any advice?

You already got your score for the July sitting? I thought those weren't available until ~September. Or are you referring to the March sitting as your last sitting?

The way the test went. I'm sure I failed. I just made a lot of silly mistakes.

How should I start studying?

It isn't possible to receive a July sitting score yet. He probably felt like he guessed on all of the questions and assumed a failing score or took the March sitting.
