  • Full-length practice exam

    I am studying to take exam 1 in the spring and I am using the Actex study guide. The end of the book has practice tests but they are only 25 questions and it doesn't tell me about a time limit. I believe that the real exam is 40 questions. Where can I find a full-length exam?

    Thanks!

    That's been changed. Exam P has been changed to 30 questions, with 3 hours allotted to completing the exam.

      My personal suggestion...(which may not be applicable since the exam material has changed)...print out the last 2-3 exams released, but DO NOT LOOK AT THE QUESTIONS OR THE ANSWERS!!!! (otherwise it ruins the rest of the idea)

      In the last 3-4 weeks, take 2-3 "simulated exams" using the previously released exams. Do it under "real exam conditions" - that is, 3-4 hours, no distractions, your calculator and pencils, and *that's it*. The first time you'll get an idea of how to pace yourself (plus know what you need to work on for the real exam), the second time you should get a decent idea of how you'll fare on the real exam.

      I've used this method for both sittings, and both times I did about what I thought I would have done in the last practice exam. Plus, I get 1-2 chances to go over stuff I thought I knew but didn't without hitting that problem on exam day for the first time.

        Full lenght exam

        There is a full length practice exam at:
        www.studymanuals.com/exam1.htm
        and my ASM Manual has four more. If you take my intensive review:
        www.math.ilstu.edu/actuary/prepcourses.html
        there will be an exam in it that will be the same length, and maybe a bit harder than the real exam.

        Yours,
