    Do we take all of these?

    For VEE credits, I was looking online at the document which lists all the classes for each college. My college, U of Pittsburgh has these classes listed

    Applied Stats Methods
    ECON 1150 Applied Econometrics
    STAT 2131 Applied Statistical Methods 1 -- STAT 1321/2320 App. Time Series
    STAT 1221 Applied Regression--STAT 1321/2320 App. Time Series

    Corporate Finance
    ECON 1440 Economics of Corporate Finance

    Economics
    ECON 0100 Intro to Micro Econ -- Econ 0110 Intro to Macro Econ
    ECON 1100 Intermed. Micro Econ -- ECON 1110 Intermed. Macroecon


    I have taken the bolded classes (or am registered to take them). My question is, do I just need a class from each of those subjects or do I need all the classes listed? I have passed P and took a few stats classes, including Intro to Probability and Mathematical Statistics (prob. part 2, but not using so much probability..) Thanks.

    Did the ECON 1150 class cover Regression and Time Series? Do you know what an AR, ARMA or ARIMA model is? Have you done least-squares regression before? If both of those questions are "no", then you'll likely have to take all of them.

    Heh, thats one i haven't actually taken yet, but am enrolled to take. I guess I'll find out soon enough, if nobody knows exactly how the classes listed and VEE credit relate.

    Let me get this right.

    The list on the SOA website stating what courses are accepted as VEE credits means we have to take all those classes, correct? For instance under Economics there's like 3 or 4 different subjects. Please help me!
