Anyone else notice that the U.S. reading list is the same as the Canadian one?
Oh the things I find when procrastinating studying...

The book list is different, so I would expect the reading list to be different somewhere along the way also. Chekc out this pdf (http://www.soa.org/files/pdf/edu-2008-spring-fsa-txtbk.pdf)
These 2 items ar enot on the US reading list:
1)Canadian Pensions and Retirement Income Planning, Watson Wyatt, Third Edition, 2006, CCH Canada Limited
2)Employee Future Benefits – Additional Disclosures, Background Information and Basis for Conclusion, Includes Section 3461 from the CICA Handbook – Accounting, 2004, CICA
And the US list contains a whole host of FASB statements not on the Canadian list (although FAS 158 pretty much supersedes all of them so that material may be similar)

Ah, I didn't look down that far. I guess I was just more surprised to see the Morneau Sobeco book on your reading list as I was under the impression that the Canadian exam was purely Canadian based and the US was purely US based. I guess the reading list is designed to expose us to the countries differences as well as to test on our knowledge of our own country's pension system.
