    probably not a bad idea, I am still proceeding as planned so far, but I might end up on one last work assignment that could mess things up for FM in december, but thats not the end of the world.... all the best!

    Why are you studying for FM?
    Aren't you taking P in September?

    Also, the title says blog.
    Where is this blog of yours?
    This thread is not a blog. :wink:
    Actuaries do it with models!

    I'm taking FM/2 in December and P/1 in November. During the week I study 5 days for P/1 and 2 days for FM/2.

    Update: Ive been reading the DM textbook, going through chapter 1 and 2. The information slightly gets confusing when Im reading the text, but once they give examples, its easy to understand. So this counts as the studying for the 2nd part of the FM/1 exam. Sometimes I find it hard to just study, haha but slowly Ill start studying more and more.

    A little update: I've been reading my derivatives market textbook, and so far its actually fun to read, to bad fm/2 doesn't cover more. Also, I am studying with TIA, which has been going real well. Honestly though, I am a single guy and sometimes I find it hard to study, I really cant imagine being married, and having kids are trying to do this.
