“I have no idea where to start”




“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.”

There must be a better way…

I know you’re serious about passing your exam.

Passing is so important to you that you’d do almost anything to pass.

But you don’t want to waste time and money by having to write your exam more than once.

You want to study efficiently.  One time. And then be done.

You’d work hard to achieve that goal.

Well, if that sounds like you, then I will help you to achieve that goal.

I will help you pass!

Think about it:

Imagine how great it would feel to know exactly what to focus on each day so that you could push yourself closer and closer to passing every day.

* Think about how much of a relief it would be to get past your mind-blocks & self-doubts, and actually having the confidence that you can really pass your exam.

* And imagine having the motivation and drive to keep going even when studying gets difficult.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have your studying organized and under control, and still have time to spend with family and friends?

I’m Brea and I’m here to show you step-by-step how to study for your exam and boost your chances of passing.

As your actuarial studying mentor, I’ll provide you with the clarity, the roadmap, the accountability and all the support you need to pass your exam the first time!

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!”

You’re not alone anymore

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.

That’s why from the day we start working together, you will have me there whenever you need me.  I’ll be ready, willing and able to help you, advise you and support you so that you can get the results you deserve.

I know it’s hard to find an actuarial mentor.  That’s why I’m here to be your actuarial mentor on your entire journey. 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions


What extras do I get with the UltimatePlus Membership?

With the UltimatePlus Membership you get everything in the Ultimate Membership (including the Pass Guarantee).

You also get the following:

Resume “Refresh”Only available on month 3 or later – I’ll do an initial review your resume and determine how you can make it stand out among the hundreds of other resumes that employers are receiving.  Once I’ve reviewed, I’ll go in an manually make changes myself so that you don’t have to put any effort into it.  I’ll adjust the formatting and the wording so that employers can easily see the value that you can add to the company.

(This is different than a Resume Critique because I do all the changes for you, which usually takes anywhere from 1-2 hours)

Discount on your study materials – You’ll get a 10% discount on any ASM or ACTEX study manual that you purchase or a 5% discount on any TIA or Coaching Actuaries online seminar that you purchase.

2 Live Q&A calls per month – These are live, 1-on-1 20-minute calls with Brea where you can line up questions about the study material and get answers right away.  It’s the perfect time to nail down concepts that you’re finding difficult to grasp.

Priority Support – As the Study Program gets more and more full, it can take anywhere from 24-48 hours to get a response sometimes, especially since I work throughout the day.  Priority support ensures that your emails are always answered first so you can expect answers within at MOST 24 hours, but usually less.  With priority support, you’ll be able to understand topics and move on quicker than you’d be able to otherwise.

I've failed my exam before. Can I still join this program?


Yes, of course.

Failing happens to (almost) everyone on their actuarial journey.  If you’ve failed before, a new and guided approach is what you need.  I’m here to provide that for you!

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!


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.


Find out a little more before you invest.


I understand that you may have doubts about whether our program can really work for you.

That’s why I’ve created a quick survey that you can take so that you can feel at ease knowing that you’re making a great decision before you join.

Click here to fill out the survey and I’ll get back to you with my thoughts within 24 hours (usually much less though).
