Default FSA Exam Order - Life and Annuities

Asking for a friend here - he's just finished the ASA modules and starting to think about the Life and Annuities FSA exams.

Anybody have guidance or thoughts on which order to take them? From what he said, it sounds like it doesn't really matter, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks and !

Yes, ultimately you have to pass them all, so it's just a "timing difference," in actuarial terms.

That said, I think LP is the logical first choice for the typical person on the ILA track. LP covers pricing, but it also covers all the fundamental product types. I think that the more you understand product types, the easier it is to grasp valuation concepts on LFV. The valuation material is a lot easier to understand if you have the elemental product mechanics straight in your head.

Beyond that, I think the difficulty of the exams has more to do with the work experience people happen to have going into the exams.

We have your exam covered:

LPM | LFMU | LFMC | LAM | ERM | QFI Quant | QFI PM | QFI IRM | G&H DP | G&H FV | G&H Sp
