    How familiar are you with calculus?
    I spent the first two to three weeks reviewing calculus.
    Particularly everything about exponential functions.

    SOA released a sample set of problems, have you done all of those? Every manual has problems. Sometimes Professors will post weekly problems you can do but those come from the sample SOA problems at least sometimes. You can also order just problems from BPP I believe and finally if you want challenging exams ASM is the place to go. For this exam, your calculus should be perfect, the exam writers are testing your ability to apply calculus to probability not testing how well you did in calc 1-3. Thus it would be really bad to miss problems because you didn't know how to differentiate or integrate a particular function.
