WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"I love the Crystal Clear manual. I think the info she provides is sufficient to pass the exams and she does a lot in her manual to keep you interested. I wish she had a manual for every exam... I would definitely use it!"

"This is the cutest Actuarial exam study guide I’ve ever seen and I wouldn’t normally think of a guide in this way "

"Solid summary of the syllabus, the use of color coding, combined with humorous language makes reading her manual an enjoyable experience."

"CC for 9 was far and away the best exam material I’ve seen. Tbf, I used it as a supplement. I went through the TIA videos, started doing problems, and whatever I didn’t have a good grasp on (section D mostly) I read through the CC manual. Would highly recommend."

"I just wanted to say your material is great--gives me a chance to practice areas of the syllabus I'd not have been able to without your resources."

I highly recommend Crystal Clear for all exams that it’s available for. At least for my style of learning, CC is the highest quality I’ve come across in my exam career.

"I would get CC as her practice problems were really great for 9. They're a mix of having some problems that build the ideas on the paper to help ensure you understand, and having some really tricky curveballs that are also within bounds for being asked. She had two instances this sitting where the curveball from her practice question was on the exam, verbatim. I think this could be useful for 8, too."

"Having said this, I was roasted by 3 practice exams by CCE, thinking I am hitting [a] new low. 
Yet, in terms of this very exam 9 in May 2023, I found that I was able to at least write something to all parts of the questions. 
Yes, I found the CCE practice exams really helped me to be okay with this exam."

"CC is good, especially the original problems. It's probably worth the money for that alone."

"CCE really helped prepare me for those curveball questions that always pop up on exam day. Not so much that she predicts them, but her problems sort of help you look at topics from various angles, which helps to broaden your base of understanding."
