Do you know if the SOA will be publishing a formula sheet for the FET exam? Thanks.

When did you make your order?

I think I faxed my order in the day the sheet was available. My credit card was charged on the 12th and the notes arrived at the end of last week (I was on vacation so I don't know the specific day).

Not unless someone scans it and posts it online. :popcorn:

Normal distribution table is not included. How can we calculate Black-Scholes if there's no normal distribution table?

They do give you a normal table, it's just not in the packet of formulas. I tried to find a link to it, but I suck at finding stuff on the SOA page.

Potentially pertinent values will be provided in a condensed/simplified table with the problem.
Check past exam APM/8V problems for examples.

If there's no normal distribution table, everyone else will be in the same boat as you, so nobody will be able to give the exact number (except for Phi(0).... you should know that one.)

Even if there is a normal distribution table, you get minimal points for giving the actual number. If you leave the answer in terms of Phi(z), where Phi is the cdf of the standard normal distribution, and everything is correct up to that point, I would assume you'd get almost full credit on the problem. This isn't the all-or-nothing situation of the multiple choice exams.
