  • For those of you who have passed P and FM

    I'm taking P in February, and feel very confident right now - I'm considering working on taking FM next, and am wondering if you think it'd be realistic to be prepared for it by late May (I'm taking a course in FM right now, the first of two semesters, but it is moving very slowly (3-4 weeks for chapter 1 of Theory of Interest), so I would most likely be working through the material on my own).

    I think I'm going to study for it after Exam P is over, and if I feel confident I'll be ready, I'll sign up for it by mid-March.

    I am planning on doing the same thing. The advice I have been given is that as long as you put in the hours on learning and practice the number of months does not matter. I live where there are a lot of actuaries, and many of them wish the exams had been offered more frequently so that they could have done the exams in a shorter time frame.

      I'm definitely going to have P, FM, and M by graduation, though I'm not certain if I'll do C on my own or wait until I have a job.

          If you're in an actuarial program where the coursework supports you taking C, it's not a horrible idea. Otherwise, IMO I wouldn't go past M/3 unless you've got experience (internships). If you take 4/C and have no experience, it looks like you're fantastic at taking exams and that's it.

              I'm a doer, not a sayer.
