Quick Guide

We've produced a short guide to choosing and using your study materials for the actuarial exams.

The guide helps with questions that many students have about which combination of study materials to choose and how best to use them to maximise their chances of exam success.

If you're about to consider some revision materials, then you may find the sections on exam revision and rehearsal particularly useful.
