The practice exams in the book were much more difficult than the real exam (but it never hurts to over practice!), but I also used the website coachingactuaries.com and found it to be of tremendous help! I took a mock exam on the site the night before the test, and some of the questions were nearly identical!!

Is the formula sheet you're selling one that you custom made? Also, is the manual available for sale outside of ebay?

It is one I custom made, spent days typing it up in LaTex, and used several sources and my own knowledge from the first time I took the exam. Using it, I passed the second time.
