“I have no idea where to start”

 

to

 

“I just passed my first actuarial exam!”

 

in as little as 12 weeks.

Don’t let this happen to you…

“After taking my university’s probability and statistics class in the fall and earning an A, I registered for the Exam P in January feeling prepared.

In reality, I was overconfident.

I didn’t look at any sample questions until about a week before my exam.

The moment I looked through solutions of SOA’s 326 sample questions, I realized I was not ready.

There were many rigorous and detailed concepts that I had no clue how to practice.

I did my best to cram and at least feel okay going into the test.

Needless to say, it completely destroyed me.

I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing half the time.

I got the inevitable failure message at the end and walked out feeling ashamed.”

“If you are studying for Exam P or any exam, I would suggest that you sign up with Brea, even though you think you might have all you need, she is the extra push that will make you go from the doubt you may have to being confident that you will pass.

I passed Exam P and I cannot wait to start studying for FM with Etched Actuarial!”

Jake Reeves (Client)

“Since I don’t study Actuarial Science at university, I have been lacking the confidence to attempt the exams even though becoming an Actuary has been my dream for years.

This program provides me a great opportunity to push myself forward for the exams and increase my confidence as my study progress is regularly monitored.

Brea-Nicole has been motivating me to work hard and I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who wishes to take the exams, especially those who are keen on passing their exams on their first attempt!”

Your Personal Study Strategist

The best way to pass your exam is to have the guidance and support of someone who has already been in your shoes.

I’m Brea-Nicole Fried and I’m so glad that I’m going to be able to help you pass your exam.

I studied actuarial science at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario and received my Bachelor’s degree in Actuarial Science in 2013.

Now, I’m an Associate of the Society of Actuaries (ASA), which means that I’ve passed all 5 of the preliminary exams and completed all the other requirements to become an ASA as well.

I’m employed full-time as an actuarial associate at a medium-sized insurance company in Canada.

I completely understand how difficult it is for you, just starting off on your actuarial journey and having very few people to lend you the guidance and support you want on this adventure.  I’ve been there myself.

It’s so hard to find an actuarial mentor… That someone that’s several steps ahead of you and willing to help you fast-track your career.

That’s why helping you pass these difficult exams is so important to me and you’ll always be my top priority. I truly want to be your actuarial mentor on your entire journey. 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

 

I'm hesitant to spend my money on this program. Is it really worth it?

I always explain to students that there are two options when it comes to studying.

1. The ‘trial and error’ approach

2. The ‘guided’ approach

 

You may choose the ‘trial and error’ approach to studying, which is fine for some students.  That approach typically takes more time and more frequently ends in failure because the student didn’t know the optimal way to study.

If you prefer the ‘guided’ approach where you’re given a step-by-step methodology and have an expert to support you throughout your entire study period, then the program is definitely worth the money.  It typically ends up more cost effective than the ‘trial and error’ approach too since the chance of passing is higher.

 

Worst case scenario in the program is you fail your exam. But even if that happens I pay for your next $225 exam registration fee so there’s very little risk to you.

 

Why not give it a try?  You can get 100% of your money back if you decide it’s not for you within the first 7 days!

I procrastinate on studying. Is this program good for me?

This program has been designed with you in mind!

Procrastination was one of the main reasons that I failed actuarial exams in the past.

That’s why I’ve added specific features into the program to help eliminate procrastination, including a daily goals calendar that gives you specific goals to try to achieve each day, as well as regular accountability check-ins.

In particular, I’ve found that the accountability check-ins really help to give the extra boost of motivation that students need when they would otherwise procrastinate!

 

Should I sign up now or wait?

For best results, I advise getting started in the program between 4-5 months before your exam.  This means that you’ll have sufficient time to get through all the material and do plenty of practice without feeling crunched for time.

 

In order to qualify for the pass guarantee (where I pay your next $225 exam registration fee if you don’t pass), you must join at least 12.5 weeks before your planned exam date at a minimum.

Do I still need a study manual/online seminar for this program?

 

Yes! The program works alongside your study manual or online seminar.

 

I currently have students using ACTEX, ASM, TIA and Coaching Actuaries.

 

If you haven’t purchased your study materials yet then I can certainly help you decide that once you’ve joined.  I’ll ask you several different questions to help determine the study materials that will best fit with your budget and learning style.

Will I have enough time for this program?

 

The program doesn’t make you do any more studying that you would need to by yourself anyway.

Actually, the program helps you to spend your study time more efficiently so you’d likely end up spending less time on studying overall.

The program is designed to make sure that you stay very focused during your study period and the regular accountability check-ins really help you to stick to your study plan.

Most days there will be anywhere from 1 – 3 hours of studying scheduled but I am very flexible with timing.

I know you’re busy and have other things to do too!

Remember, your study strategy is customized to you so if you can’t fit studying in on certain days we can work around it or can extend your study period so that you’re not feeling crunched for time.

 

How many people are in the program?

As of Oct 2017 there are approximately 55 people that are currently registered in the program and more are joining almost everyday!

 

Spots in the program are limited since I work full-time during the day.  To guarantee your spot in the program sign up as soon as possible to make sure that you get your spot in the program if you’d like one.
