        I passed Course 1 on the first try. But I did have the benefit of having a math class in calculus-based probability.

          (says the same thing) and I used Broverman's study manual.

              It took me a grand total of not one, not two, not three, but FOUR tries to pass Exam 1/Exam P.

              However, I passed Exam FM on my first shot , and now am three weeks into my first job as a Health and Welfare actuary at a major HR consulting firm, so if you keep it up, anything's possible!

                  Two times was thankfully a charm for me. 4 the first time last September, still waiting to see what I got in Feb.

                    Technically, it took me 2nd time to pass EXAM P. I was stupid to take a wrong calculator during first time(sep 2005), and no wonder got a very low score. This time (feb06), I did really well, and my secret was just to go over those 123 problems over and over again.

                      OK - I passed it on the first try.

                        I passed on the first try.

                        I'm studying now for the FM test in May. I don't know if this one will be a one time pass though.

                            My brother can do about 115 of the 123 questions on the test...yet he has scored a 0 both times. In February, his computer he was taking it on froze 30 minutes in. I believe the first time he didn't study too hard..so he should have scored better.

                            I take it for the first time in May. I've studied Risk Management and have been doing the practice exam for about 3 weeks. I hope I at least score.

                              How to pass exam p

                              So far I have made it about 70% the way through the Actex study manual, I have began the 123 problems, been to a seminar, and have begun reading the risk management notes from the soa. I now have about a month left to prepare. What do you think my chances are? Especially if I study the 123 problems over and over again? This is my first time.


                              Thanks.
