Dear Coaching Actuaries,
I just passed Exam C, and I must give credit where credit is due. Coaching Actuaries and the ADAPT question bank were essential to my exam success. When I took MLC, I failed with a 2, and discovered ADAPT soon afterward. In six months I passed with a 7.
Exam C was much the same story. I thought I knew the material the first time around. C can trap you into thinking “Oh, I know this; I learned this in school;” et cetera. The first time taking C, I failed with a 2. My undoing was not knowing what I didn’t know. ADAPT confronted my weaknesses and cued me to work through them. I shored up my rough spots, sharpened my speed, and knocked out the final preliminary yesterday.
As I think this will be my “graduation” from Coaching Actuaries, I want to say Thank You. You are doing the actuarial community at-large a tremendous service by providing young students with teaching materials that will serve us as we grow into the profession.
Yours in Mathematics,
We got this wonderful thank you letter from Dan, who passed Exam C in June after his second try. Stories like Dan’s make us on the CA team excited to come to work knowing our efforts are having a profound impact!
