since the uniform distribution is not in the exam tables, should I also memorize the formulas for its 1st and 2nd limited moments?
E(X^d) and E[(X^d)^2]

Thanks.

Yes - the uniform distribution, although not among the listed distributions in the Appendix of Loss Models that you'll receive during the exam, is absolutely a must to know for taking Exam M.

You could probably do the limited moments from first principles on the exam, though.
