This is my first post in Actuarial Outpost.
I have currently passed exam P, FM, IFM and SRM. I received my SRM results last week. I am planing on taking STAM or PA in June 2021. I am having a hard time choosing between the two exams. Coaching Actuaries and others have courses for STAM and a lot of practice problems while PA does not. However, PA seems like the logical next step after SRM. Has anyone been in this position or have any advice? Any guidance is really appreciated!
Great question and I’m sure that many other are in similar situation. Congrats on passing SRM! This provides you with the fundamental concepts needed for PA and so you will find that the SOA’s modules are largely a review, for the statistical concepts that is.
