Welcome to Rethink Studying!
Actuarial Exams are frustrating. We’re here to help.
Hey everyone, Roy Ju here! I received a flood of emails asking for actuarial exam advice after the SOA announced that I became the world-record holder as the youngest FSA of all time. My close friend, Mike Jennings, used this study method and accelerated his exam progress (passing two prelim exams, one fellowship exam, all FAP modules, and all FSA modules within 1.5 years after experiencing a frustrating 2 year exam drought)…so we knew there was something special with this approach. After receiving several more emails, I partnered with Mike, and we wrote a book to share our methods! The initial reviews and feedback have been fantastic, so we are excited to share this with everyone!
In addition to the book, we are offering free study tips in the Articles section of our website. Please reach out to us if you have any questions – we would love to hear from you!
