    Congrats on passing! Do you mind if I ask you what you used to prepare yourself for Exam P?

    ACTEX, but this time for FM I'm planning to use ASM as well. See it for yourself what fits you best. After studying the coverage of the exam I just did lots of practice exams I saw at the net and practice exams of ACTEX. The more practice exams the better you get. If you get bored answering the practice exams then you are very ready to take the real thing.

    Congratulations! ^^
    and thank you for saying that you used Actex. This makes me feel a lil'bit more confident as I am using Actex too. xD

    My biggest concern is "Am I just USED TO answer the questions?". I am worried that even if I can answer the practice questions, I do not really understand the concept~~ It is merely because I have seen or solved the questions before.

    And.. Are the real exam questions similar to the practice questions?

    A big NO NO NO! The most important part is to understand the concept of most of the contents of the syllabus, maybe not all since there are times that I just did memorize some formulas because analyzing would be very difficult. You need to familiarize yourself with the concepts and be comfortable that you know it clear. Practice Exams would really help, you should not only know to answer them because you know it before, make sure you understand why is it solved that way.

    grades are out! Passed with a 9! I know all I need is a 6 but it just feels good knowing that I OWNED that test!

    Getting a 6 is like winning a game 24-21. Getting a 9 is like winning 66-3!

    Good Job! I get an 8 anyway. And I feel so happy as well knowing I guessed 4 questions on the Exam and the others always has the probability to be wrong for some errors.

    I could say this is a motivation to move on to the next. Hello Exam FM/2.

    yes, FM/2. Are you sitting for the feb exam? I started studying for FM/2 about 2 hours after sitting for P/1. Hopefully it'll be enough time...
