    The questions aren't from the SOA 140, but I'm assuming this is still what you are looking for. I used this website to drill little bits and pieces at a time. I made a cup of coffee in the morning and did 5, then did 5 more when I had 15 minutes, etc. Don't try to do marathon sessions, you'll just get tired, and the purpose right now is to understand the fundamentals and create a systematic approach to similar type questions. When you have a few minutes, do a quick "quiz" using this website, it will really help.

    But one thing I found using saab.org is that there was a lack of Poisson questions (if I remember correctly,) don't forget about those.

    Thanks Jim. I started using the infinite actuary program. It has made me start reasoning the problem through. Opposed to before where I was just trying to learn the type of problem.

    I used the TIA practice exams, they were pretty tough, I don't recall if I even got through all of them. But they were good by showing relatively simple techniques for what appeared to be ugly questions, and it was the ugly questions I ran across on my real exam. Dave Revelle was good about personally responding to questions I had, as well.

    On the home page, click view account, followed by view transcript, then login to your account. After doing so, you will see your results right in front of you.
