    Old 7 vs New 6

    Now that the CAS has rearranged the exam structure, 6 is now the Regulatory exam. It's my understanding that 5, 6, and 7 have been rearranged into 3 different exams plus 2 Online Courses.

    I intend to use old Exam 7s as practice tests for 6, but does anyone know which topics from those old exams are no longer relevant on New 6?

    Items off the old Exam 7:
    -- Section A. Much of this is off, especially the Mallor paper.
    -- Section B. Some of this is still on, but the Ghezzi paper is off as is the note on the NAIC Model Law. Don't need to know about the various types of laws regarding filings [prior approval, file-and-use, etc.]. In general, this is Section A in the new exam.
    -- Section C. All still on. This is now the new Section B.
    -- Section D. All still on. This is now the new Section C, with much less emphasis.

    From the prior Exam 6, the section on Reinsurance has largely moved here.

    So, if you're looking at old Exam 7s, throw out anything from Mallor, Ghezzi, Wilcox, the "Business as Never Before" article from A.M. Best, Conger, Gorvett, Harrington/Doerpinghaus, Marshall/Neale, and most of Miceli.
