Here’s what I’ve found
Passing with the ACTEX manual, as well as other free resources available online, is definitely possible. It’s a great study manual filled with very thorough and helpful information.
But regardless of how good a study manual is, there are still lots of people that don’t end up passing their exam the first time. This is what you should really be concerned about.
If you want to give yourself the best chance of passing, you need to make sure you’re utilizing your study manual and the other resources available online to the fullest. You need to use a studying approach that will fully prepare you for the exam.
Your Study Strategy
Your studying approach is what I call your study strategy. It’s easy to get this wrong because it’s not very intuitive at all. I hate to see exam candidates study so hard and not end up getting the results they deserve. Unfortunately it happens all the time.
That’s why I partner with Exam P candidates like you to help them pass their first actuarial exam. They learn step-by-step how to prepare properly and significantly boost their chances of passing. I’ve shown many people how to pass with just ACTEX alone. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, consider joining the Study Strategy Program. You can find all the details here.
