are you allowed to talk about the new EOM's? I thought it was supposed to be like IA where you're not allowed to talk about it.

Q: Am I allowed to discuss the End-of-Module Assessments with others?
A: No. Please refer to the SOA Terms and Conditions for e-Learning Candidates
regarding collaboration on End-of-Module Assessments.
I think you are right, that sucks though.

if it's anything like old IA, i found it to be doable without any discussion.

How many study hours does it take to complete a module? And the EMA?

I'm thinking about starting the modules and trying to get through the first 5 before I have to really start studying for Exam PA, though I won't get any study time for the modules since I'll be using it all for PA. Is anyone else in the same boat?

This is my plan as well, are you planning on June PA? I do have separate study time for the modules, and that's been a big help, but even without study time they wouldn't be too bad. When are you planning on starting to study for PA?

Okay, that's good to hear. I'm going to take PA in June and start taking study hours in February. My company is very generous with the amount of study hours they give for it, but per company policy I wouldn't be able to take additional study hours for the modules until July. However, I was thinking I could get through some modules in the meantime, as I don't think I'll be studying for the exam on my own time until May. My only hangup is that you are given 96 hours for end of module assessments and I'm afraid I'd have to give up some weekends to complete these, which doesn't sound nearly as fun as using company-sponsored study time.

Ugggh, exactly how I feel. I'm starting the first assessment on Sunday and hopefully finishing it on Monday (I have MLK day off). I'm not terribly excited about using my weekends, but I'd REALLY like to get these done quick.

how does the grading time frame work? I swear I read that they were going to be more granular in terms of when to expect your grade/ feedback. Sounded like for the old FAP, timing for your grades was pretty luck based.
