    That's a very poor way of figuring out how much you'd be paid since the standard of living is different in every country. There are places where you could live like a king with 577 USD a month.

    Exam 1/P is a good start. I consider exam 2/FM brain candy. The people who pass that one are a dime a dozen. The third exam is a good weeder exam to see who can get any farther in the exam process.
