Most people spend time practicing problems they already know,
Adapt gives you the right problem at the right time based on your Earned Level® so you don’t waste your study time."

The Adapt Earned Level® Concept
Get Exam Confidence

Adapt tells you where you are and where you need to be. Adapt is the only S question bank that adapts to your skill level. This provides you with questions at your current difficulty, not too easy but not too difficult.

How it works:

  1. You start with an Earned Level® of 0.
  2. The Adapt engine will give you questions at and slightly above your current difficulty.
  3. As you answer questions correctly, your Earn Level will increase.
  4. Take exams until you are confident that you will pass. We recommend at least an Earned Level® of 7.
  5. As you practice taking exams, you gain confidence that you will not fail.

The Adapt Question Generator
Create Custom Exams and Quizzes

Your exams and quizzes will be tailored to your skill level. Our large question database ensures a unique experience every time. You will find questions created exclusively for Adapt as well as questions from past SOA exams.

  • Adapt’s Exam Engine lets you choose the difficulty level for your questions.
  • Adapt also lets you build custom quizzes on specific topics, which is great for studying and for review to make sure you do not lose any of the things you’ve studied.

A mock exam is static. Adapt is dynamic.
That makes all the difference.

Discussion Forum

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does it work?

    Everyone begins taking practice problems at their current level of knowledge, and as the questions are mastered, Adapt will provide new questions at a more difficult level. The goal is for students to reach exam-level difficulty questions and be able to master those questions. This is unmatched by any practice exams on the market today.

  • Who should use Adapt?

    ​Students who want to take practice tests in exam-like conditions. The CBT tool closely simulates the one used by the SOA and CAS. For anyone who is preparing and needs to practice large amounts of problems, Adapt is the tool for them. Each exam has a large database of questions to draw from.

  • What is the Pass Guarantee?

    ​The Pass Guarantee allows you to renew your Adapt subscription for another equal length period if you do not pass your exam. This renewal can only be used once. We require proof that you are re-registering for the exam.

  • Do you provide custom subscription lengths for Adapt?

    ​No. Adapt only comes in the subscription lengths offered on our website.

  • Is my information saved if I purchase an additional Adapt subscription?
