Dr. Ostaszewski's is the best
If you excercise a call on a stock, you get the stock. If you excercise a call on a future, you get a future, not the stock. They are priced differently because they are derivatives of different...
TI-30IIS is best for exam P, because of the 2 line display, scrolling memory, and solar power. The BA II plus is needed for FM because of the built in financial functions. After the first two...
It is kind of mythical, depending on where you are from. It is unheard of around here.
I honestly don't know. I have only heard of the SAT in movies and such. I don't know anyone who has taken it.
Remeber though, that if you are not yet in college, you still need to prove that you are good enough at math to get into an actuarial program. Then you will have to prove to employers that you are...
I don't recall ever having seen one, but I have also done every life con question I could get my hands on, and I never was in a situation in which I would need a formula like that.
I am graduating this December with everything you mentioned below except the masters degree. I had no problem getting full time job offers last semester. A masters degree would serve no purpose.
Any particular exam you are studying for?

You are given P(normal BP) = .64
P(Irregular| Normal BP) = 1/8
so, P(Irregular and Normal BP) = .08
.15/8 would be P(Irregular | Normal BP) * P(Irregular)
I Have done exams 1,2, and 4, beginning in May 2006, and have never heard of that seal business.
I wouldn't say that bonds are not risky. Government issued bonds are the least risky. Bonds are rated as to their chance of defualt, depending on who issued them. Junk Bonds are one type of risky...
that is true. No calculus is explicitly tested
ASM is the best.
It depends on your intership experience. You should keep your experience and exams balanced. If you have more exams without the work experience, you are just more expensive to hire. If you have a...
You shouldn't have posted that. You can get in a lot of trouble for trying to steal an exam. You should probably just forget about taking it.
Be aware that the ASM manual authors change between P and FM. I stuck with Dr. Ostaszewski's manual for P, and it worked just as well as for FM.
And I have to ask why you took all the time and effort to pass an actuarial exam when you are "clueless on the whole actuary stuff". Is taking actuarial exams just a...
Online, the SOA has a list of all universities and courses which currently count as VEE. If yours is not listed, you can petition them to accept your courses.
When you go into the exam they reset your BA II Plus, and I don't know why it would reset this, but I would check that your order of operations did not get reset from AOS to chain just to be safe. ...
It is the manual written by my advisor, Dr. Ostaszewski. Find places to buy it on my post here:
Since you passed, I would say don't try to fix your method, because it ain't broke. The only difference now is you are facing a shorter exam with easier material.
