    I've passed the first three. I absolutely think the lack of work experience is a big factor that has caused me problems. I've been a student forever it seems like, which is why I'd like to get a job.

    You should post this in the MFE section.

    I think the study manual is enough. It's also good to have the textbook to get a little bit more explanation, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary.

    This may explain my horrible job search experience. I have an MS in applied math and I dropped out of a Ph.D. program. Also, I had two exams passed and just passed both of the Exam M sections.

    Well, I squeaked by with a 6. I don't know how it happened but I'm very happy I won't have to study for the exam again. I guess miracles do happen.
