What are these exams all about?    

In the route to becoming and Actuary, a series of exams must be completed to show your progression in the field.  These exams do not need to be taken in any particular order, although most people begin with Exam P/1 or FM/2.  Listed below are links to information about the preliminary exams.  To read more information about the exams in general, or the exams after these, check out this site.

Do not be fooled by the material. These exams are very difficult and when preparing for them they should be taken seriously in order to pass.  It is recommended that for every one hour of the exam, you should study at least 100 hours.  (i.e. Exam P/1 is a 3 hour exam, so it is recommended that you study at least 300 hours)
