    Is FM not SOA questions? :skeptical: Just kidding

    The past year questions definitely do not reflect the "reality". Toil more on your practice exams on the manual.

    All the best!

    How many hours of preparation do I need to pass the exam FM?

    How many hours of preparation do I need to pass the exam FM? I would like to ask you also for some tips and techniques in answering the questions. Like for example when the problem asked to solve for PV, sometimes more than one possible solutions would pop up in my head which I think are logically equivalent but they would come up to different answers so I would end up thinking which the right path was. I find some problems really confusing. Well, maybe because I've just started learning the course. Studying and reviewing for exam P used 300-400 hours of my time and I started with a bit knowledge on it. This time do you think it requires me double of the time I spent for P? And please FM tips please

    Study more and then come back to ask about topics that aren't clear. There's not much information anybody can give to you when you haven't really begun studying.
