Hi everyone,
I'm new to here so please forgive me for the stupid question:
I currently have BPP-P and Actex-P and Kellison's book, do you guys think
I still need get ASM manual for a complete review of course FM?
Your opinion will be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

BPP-P and Actex-P don't have much to do with FM. Kellison's a decent book to use to learn the material, but the problems in the book are pretty different from what you will see on an exam. I think ASM's a good book, but there are others out there too. I wouldn't say you need it.

Hi ken,
thanks for the reply. Yes I mean BPP-FM and Actex-FM. Do you think I still need ASM now that I've got these two?
Thanks again~

PrinceofTroy??? Go with what you have. ASM has tons of examples if money is not a problem, seeing that you already have 2 manuals.

Digital Actuarial Resources also published a short study guide for exam fm. The guide contains all the equations that appear on the test. I used the guide for the last sitting and passed my first time. Here's the website:

Would that be a truthful statement, or self-promotion?
