Don’t have time to learn and memorize all this?

Then Prioritize with the Exam Analysis Cheat Sheet

For the Spring 2020 SOA Fellowship Exams

Wish you knew which readings get tested most often?

With a full-time job and other family commitments, study time is usually quite limited. This makes it difficult to understand all the exam content thoroughly enough for exam day.

Plus, you’re also confined by the limited amount of information that the brain can learn and memorize in such a short time-frame.

That’s why I created the Exam Analysis Cheat Sheet for FSA exams.

The Cheat Sheet shows you which readings have the highest and lowest probability of being tested on exam day (based on data compiled from the SOA since Fall 2013). This way, you’ll be able to focus your limited study time on the readings that matter most.

The Cheat Sheet also allows you to easily find all questions that have been asked on past exams related to each reading too.

If you’re like most people, with a busy schedule and limited study time, the Cheat Sheet is perfect for you. It’ll help you set priorities during your study time so that you know you’re using it wisely.

How’s it work?

The Exam Analysis Cheat Sheet is delivered in an Excel Workbook and contains a listing of all the readings that have ever been tested.

I’ve analysed past exams and determined the likelihood of each reading being tested on the upcoming exam.  The likelihoods are based on the number of times that the reading has been tested relative to the number of opportunities it has had to be tested since Fall 2013.

For example, if an exam has 10 questions, each reading had 10 opportunities to be tested on that exam.

The Exam Analysis Cheat Sheet uses a five color system to show you the relative likelihood of each reading being tested.

A green reading is highly likely to be tested.  Yellow and orange readings have a lesser probability of being tested.  Red readings have never been tested.  White readings don’t have enough history to analyse yet.

The Exam Analysis Cheat Sheet also shows you which past exam questions you can refer to for practice of any of the previously tested readings.

Watch the video below for more in-depth information about the Cheat Sheet and how you can use it for your studies.

Cheat Sheet Reviews

“The cheat sheet was invaluable for both understanding the vast landscape of readings and allocating study time. Being able to sort readings by importance helped me keep my eye on the ball and “focus” on what was important. I’m naturally disorganized so I found myself frequently going back to the cheat sheet to stay on track. It definitely saved me a lot of time and headache.” – Andrew

“There was at least one topic for my last exam sitting that I pretty much solely reviewed at the end because of that worksheet and then nailed a question on it, so I am a big fan.” – AO member

“I’d love to memorize everything about everything (sarcasm…) …but I’m being realistic with myself that that won’t happen and using Etched’s worksheet as a way to focus.” – AO Member
