I guess I will do the same thing.

What were your thoughts on the IRM exam? What is difficult? How was the material?

Do you have any recommendations?

Thank you
It was such a good treat after QFIC for me. I was pretty certain that I passed so I was able to start studying for QFI PM without having to wait until now, which is nice.

I used TIA and they did a good job summarizing everything in ~7 hours of video and ~150 DSG pages. I did read the source materials, but felt it was not necessary. Spent the last 2 weeks memorizing all the flash cards (about 150 of them) and looking over past exams. I think it's totally doable if you want to start now, or even wait a couple of months to start.

Thank you. I will begin searching for the materials so I can take this.

How much time did you put into the exam and what was your study schedule like?

For everyone who passed, I think we should be somewhat proud of ourselves. 34.7% pass rate; the lowest of any FSA exams and the lowest passing percentage in the history of QFI Core (well it's QFI QF now, but you get the point lol)

Previous lowest pass rate for QFI Core was 35.1%

34.7% is on soa.org for FSA exam statistics
