Default Advise! PA on June & LTAM on October

Hello Guys,

As the title stated I need your advice, I am thinking of the following

PA on June & LTAM on October
Start studying on March 1

Do you think it is plausible? is it too much?
if so, how can I plan my study? should I focus on PA fully then LTAM?
Or should I study for both at the same time (ex:1.5 hr LTAM, 1 hr PA each day)?

Please advise

Depending on your study habits, and how much exposure you already have to the LTAM material, I definitely think this is doable. I passed STAM in June and passed LTAM in October (I had already taken both of them and failed previously, though, so I already had some exposure).

I would highly recommend not studying for both at the same time, even though PA seems a little easier than a normal exam. Even if you don't start studying for LTAM until July, that's still 4 full months of studying, which is probably enough if you really focus

Good luck!
