"The CFE exam preparation product from XP Actuarial was extremely valuable for me in my pursuit of getting through this Fellowship exam. Clayton is a great instructor (and recently completed this track himself) who really does understanding what we are going through when trying to take down these exams. Some of the things I found most valuable of the XP product were:
- In depth math examples performed in his Video of the Week
- I failed this exam once, and am awaiting results for the 2nd time. After my first fail, Clayton personally reached out to me and questioned what XP Actuarial could do better to help me pass. Even though I studied this material on my own (didn’t have anyone in my company writing with me), having Clayton’s commitment to seeing me succeed really boosted my confidence and kept me hungry to continue to learn some of the trickier concepts from the syllabus.
- I found XP’s Case Study Analysis to be done really well – he condenses the large case study into a relevant, smaller file, while highlighting possible examinable areas/questions to keep on the top of your mind.
- A large bank of practice questions and exams to help master all topics of the syllabus.
Overall, my experience with XP Actuarial was good, and I would recommend their products to all actuarial students out there taking this exam!" aaron_yanofsky

“Want to thank Steve from XP Actuarial. Their products were absolutely fantastic for this exam. I found the practise questions to be extremely practical and relevant. The study manual itself wasn't just a copy/paste of the texts; they were very helpful in understanding the key topics. Also Steve himself was very quick to answer questions. 100% recommend."

"I decided to switch to XP for my last exam (I found the PAK practise problems to be less useful)." dontbeanactuary
"For those debating which materials to go with, I would recommend considering XP. This exam is pretty tough with plenty of difficult concepts, and was a little daunting for my first FSA exam, but I passed comfortably. The study manual really drills home important topics, and I was able to receive a lot of additional help from the instructor when needed. Thanks again!!" pr21
“I will recommend this coaching to all my friends who are taking SDM. It was the greatest coaching ever in my actuarial exam path. Again thanks for all your support with kindness. Please keep in touch :))" (Porapol Likitpronswan, SDM student)
“I tried XP for SDM exam after I failed this exam twice using PAK. At the beginning, I was hesitating to spend more money on seminars since I feel they worked in the similar ways. BUT, XP did make a difference!
I appreciated all efforts Steve made to help me pass! Steve is a really good teacher. He knows how to teach people in a way that suits them best and makes my study not boring anymore! I will definitely recommend XP to all students who are taking SDM." (Yining Chen, SDM student)
