Re: CPCU - Worth it right now?

these tests are not difficult if you study, I feel they are 300 level work at best. Take 2 or 3 at time and get it out of the way

Re: ARM

If you work for a company go for the CPCU - start with your strongest subject, take them in backwards order and take two at a time - you can whip through it in a couple of years.

Re: ARM

I have both the CPCU and ARM. In my opinion both are good, but I find I USE what I learned in the ARM much more than CPCU.
The ARM helps me figure out a risk. CPCU is a good, general insurance education but it probably won't make you any more money unless your on the company side.

Re: My CPCU journey - almost finished.....

Don't make that big of a deal out of CPCU, the tests are easy - just read the books and answer the questions. A lot of folks tend to over think the exams - I have taught all 10 parts, my students who had the hardest time passing were the ones who read too much into the questions. The CPCU isn't that...

Re: CIC & CPCU at the same time?

If you have the time go for it, they are not that hard.
You should look around Florida, I would think they would be runnung a C$C every week - those folks like that $425 a course.
Don't but any of the study guides, get the books and read them - CPCU is, at best, a 200 level course.

Re: Ethical Problem - Please help!

You work for a crook. Leave as soon as you can find another job. Being around a dirt bag like this can only cause bad things to happen tp you. Look for a job ASAP

Re: Less than two weeks left!

CPCU is not that difficult - relax
Ed objectives are some professor blowing smoke - study the definitions are your gold
70% pass, 5% don't buy the books, 5% don't open their books, 10 % are to stupid to pass 10% have a bad day - So what's to worry about ?
