    I've fallen off the wagon when it comes to doing problems. I've spent more time relearning how to do them. But, today I will get back on.

    I started to study yesterday, and my exam is scheduled for march. I'm not sure I could do it on time but we'll see. Worst case scenario, I will reschedule it if I'm not ready. I have to learn a lot of materials though. I'm following in your footsteps, I'm gonna post every night just to keep track and to motivate myself. with that said, today I studied the discrete and random variables; I did some problems with arithmetic progressions and one with series. I found it quite interesting...I figured I would put more emphasize on the most important chapters and I will review algebra/calculus at last.

    Perseverance is the key. I've been reading the Deeper Understanding pdf to get a better understanding of the problems. I also did 10 problems tonight and still have difficulties with normal dist.

    Good luck!

    Yesterday i studied Conditional probabilities and independence. It's rather an easy topic but I better practice and do as many problems as I can; It takes me more time that I would like to resolve problems implying bayer's theorem. More over,I heard that the main difficulty for exam P is the amount of time we have so...practice practice practice

    10 from Bernoulli, Binomial, and Exponential. They were good but I really need to hit normal hard tomorrow.

    I did a practice exam. I understood most of the problems and got a few of them right. Still need a big improvement to pass the test.

    Good for you for starting this thread! It is a huge encouragement to me. I too, am starting from scratch. I graduated with a BBA (marketing) in 1991 and have been a stay at home mom for 7+ years. I am preparing for the next steps in my life, and been enjoying rediscovering my inner math geek.

    I have been using an ebook for my prep available at

    http://www.actuarialcbt.com/

    This site has some practice exams as well, which I will pound on after I go through the ebook. (I am about 3/4 the way through and have found it very helpful.)

    I am believing to be ready by July...

    Thanks - Mary
