Is anyone going to miss the feeling of anxiously waiting for exam results after they get their final pass??

I might actually miss the process... it's been kinda fun...

Iíll miss the thrill of accomplishing a huge goal (after I pass this and 7), but the waiting period? Absolutely not. Iím sure Iíve wasted several hours checking this board post exam.

wow..you doubled on 7 and 9...I've heard of maybe 7 or 8 people who tried that and they all failed both on the first try...seems like a terrible idea but hope you have better luck than them

I will surely miss the big rush and the feeling when you learn you passed the exam. But I will surely not miss the studying, exam process and wait for the result.

either that or they're flipping coins on problems graders can't reconcile
Tuesday afternoon of Vegas week most graders are at the airport traveling home. I suppose some might stay longer to drink and/or gamble or otherwise enjoy themselves.

If they haven't reconciled before Tuesday afternoon they've got bigger problems.

If you think this process has been fun, you should join the exam committee when you've got your FCAS! They can always use more volunteers!

Oh no no no...I just mean that once I pass them both, I will miss that sense of accomplishment.

If I fail 9 I'd consider doubling up since I'd have 10 months.
