    Question Advice: Taking Exam P and FM at the same time.

    Hello everyone,
    I took exam p 3 times and I didn't pass it. The first time I got a 2, the second time I got a 5 and the third time I have no ideal but I mostly ran out of time.
    I think I know the material well (Exam P) I just have to work on managing the time, would you recommend someone like me to retake Exam P and FM at the same time (may 2008)
    Thank you :madguy:

    Better not. Just concentrate on one is enough.

    I have the same situation before. I took P in May got a 2, took it again in August got a 3(I thought I'll get a 5).

    I know that FM comes once every 6 months so I didn't want to wait. I registered for Nov and planned to take P in Feb of the following year. Somehow I just can't wait and took FM on Nov 7 and P on Nov 31 and passed both with 6.

    I am a Finance major so FM wasn't so bad for me.
