    Doing the same thing!

    I'm in the same boat. The good news is: If we don't make it this time, there's always next May! I've looked at some past exams (most recent ones as they deal with PPA), and they don't seem to be...

    Personally, being able to take a 5 hour exam in two segments (or in two separate test sessions) is quite favorable. Also, MLC can be used as part of substitute for EA1.

    Derivatives on BPP FM Study program?

    I'm wondering, does anyone know if the BPP FM study program teaches derivatives? If not, I'm probably going to use Dr. O's NEAS study manual, at least to begin with.

    ASM Exams

    I was getting 50-65% on the harder ones. If I had been getting 70+% I would have passed. I was getting over 70%+ on 1-5 exams.
