Hi. I've just decided to go back to school and pursue actuarial studies. If anyone else out there is in their second career, I'd be glad for some advice.

I, too, am a career changer (former high school mathematics teacher). What is your background? There is a lot of information at this site and it can take awhile to go through all the information here. You might also check out www.beanactuary.com for additional information (if you haven't yet). They have stuff for career changers as well. From all of my reading on this career I believe that having had another career can only benefit you in your next job. Good luck and enjoy the journey in your new career.

Thanks, Waz. I taught high school, too. Although teaching is a challenging career in itself, I miss the analytical challenges. I think I'll try to take the first exam in the fall, depending on how much I can study over the next couple of months.
