    Are "Actuarial Mathematics" and "Models for Quantifying Risk" really necessary???


    I plan to give MLC in November. I initially planned to study from ASM only (the new 11th edition with the syllabus changes).

    But a friend of mine told me that I must study from "Actuarial Mathematics" (the new one with the changes) and/or from "Models for Quantifying Risk".

    I am confused. Should I study from (i). ASM only or (ii). ASM with either AM or MQR or (iii). Just AM and MQR???

    Please reply.

    I am going to write it in May and use ASM only.

    From what I have heard of, any of those 3 those options is fine.

    Better to ask your friend why those textbooks are necessary.
