    Taking exam P in May 2014 (2nd Time)

    I graduated from business school with a bachelors in marketing and management. I took one class in statistics about 8 years ago. I took a few calculus classes about 12 years ago. I passed exam P with three months of rigorous study. I went through "Probability for Risk Management" by Hassett, then more importantly I went through the actex probability test study manual. I also studied for 3 months and passed the FM test using the ASM FM manual, which was really nice. I'm now one month into studying for MLC and the test date is April 29th. I'm using the ASM manual for MLC. Studying has become my hobby and I like the material. I figure I studied 300-400 hours per test.

    How long did it take you to pass the exam p? Studying for the first time? Did you clear it on the first attempt?

    If you are not in ActSci, you can easily study for the exams on your own. I have done this. I bought ASM study manuals and worked on my own. A lot of people do that.

    (Exam P) November 2013

    That's what I did, so you should be fine. Just make sure you have all your formulas memorized and do a lot of practice problems.

    Most of the questions they ask probably wont involve calculus (but some will).
