View Full Version : CAS 7 Materials

I noticed 2 new materials that's not available form The Actuarial Bookstore. Anybody here taking exam 7? Where are you getting them? I have never borrowed from the CAS library. Is it easy/convenient?

Sorry I meant the NAIC Annual Statement Blanks and the Insurance Expense Exhibit. I'm working outside the US, so my company (obviously) doesn't have those. Any suggestions where I can find them? Thanks! :smile:

You will find examples as Appendix A and Appendix B in your IASA Property Casualty Insurance Accounting Textbook, which you have to get anyway.
They are 1997 versions, but there are very few changes in the current versions.
Appendix A and Appendix B should be all you need.

if you really want blanks, you can call Bowne who publishes them. the 800 number on teh bakc of the book says 800 223 3103 but I do not know if that will work for you internationally. They send one free to me when I request it, but again, international might be different. If you want it and cannot contact them I could be persuaded to call them and ask about how to go about it internationally.

Thanks for the generous offer, Flora. I'll try and contact them myself first, but I'll probably stick to Maine's idea.
Btw, I remember seeing on the web a place where people are selling used books(P/C) but forget where it was. Does anyone know where I can find it? Thanks!

Note that codification started for 2001, so there will be some major changes to minor items in the 2001 blank. For example, there is no longer a Schedule P penalty, and the importance of the premium deficiency reserve will probably deserve more scrutiny.

True, and there is some risk from using an old blank, but I think it's minimal. Most, if not all, of the questions will come from the notes, rather than straight from the blanks, which are more there for reference.
A completed blank (such as your own company's if one is available, or the Appendices in IASA) I found more helpful than an actual blank "Blank", but to each his own.
And the notes are conflicting and refer to all sorts of old and new versions of the blanks. Some of the notes still refer to Schedule O and how many years has that been gone?
Boy-o-boy this was a fun exam.
