I have passed P. I failed FM in august because I didn't prepare for any of the "Financial Economics" material. I will retake FM in December, but meanwhile I want to start knocking out the VEE requirements. I think I want to do the NEAS online courses. What order should I take these, and is it a good idea to take more than one at a time?
Thanks in advance

VEE is a joke, NEAS makes it a dumb joke.

I had credit from college. My co-worker took both stats at the same time and studied for them for a day before getting 90%+ on both.

Yep. Working on MFE now, so hopefully in November and then do modules.

One more question from my side...is there any particular reason to go for MLC and C prior to MFE?....and how much time(approximately) you devoted to prepare for MLC and C (Please tell separately for both)?..Thanks in advance.

Honestly? Probably MLC but I didn't really devote serious time to any of them, I half-a$$ed pretty much all of the first tries (except FM which is why I passed on first try... that and it was the first sitting of FM :)).

I probably spent more time overall on MLC but I had a much better stats base knowledge so C wasn't that bad (though I did get a higher grade on MLC than C)

Just wondering. On average, how many hours did you study for each exam?

If you add up the hours from all the attempts, probably the 100/hr of exam rule fit pretty well.
