    Then how is the way to be an actuary? Get degree in Accounting or Mathematics?

    It contains consolidated information on the various actuarial organizations in the US and Canada, exam success techniques, and non-technical skills critical to long term success in the actuarial profession.

    We wish you luck!

    In the US you can get a degree in underwater basket weaving, it doesn't matter. Of course a relevant degree will help! The actuarial career here is somewhat unique in that you don't need a degree in the subject matter to be successful. Essentially you need a strong aptitude for math, the ability to apply math appropriately in business situations, and strong communication skills. And of course, you must be able to pass the exams the actuarial societies here require. Have you read www.beanactuary.com? If not try that.
