04-13-2011, 09:09 PM
Hello, I am a Junior, Actuarial Science Major, and i am studying for Exam P (May 31st at 4pm). I am currently taking the actuarial probability class(at my school), whereas we practice problems out of the Actex manual, and take tests given by the instructor (the test problems are usually MUCH together than the problems out of the ACTEX manual.) I usually score around 60-75% on the tests, and I am on chapter 9 (transformations). My question is, if i am to start using the TIA online seminar next monday (i am a MUCH better visual learner than by learning from the manual), will there be enough time for me to finish all of the Online seminar problems, and be adaquately prepared for exam P by may 31st? And how much time should i devote on these seminars daily? Should I still be using ACTEX while using the seminar?

Let me start by stating this loud & clear: cramming is NOT RECOMMENDED for P.
That being said, it all depends on how much time you can put daily. The key here is that you'll not be learning the material from scratch, I was in a similar situation after failing my first attempt, it took me around 4 - 5 weeks to go through TIA seminar and solve the problems as I had superficial understanding of some topics and solid understanding of others, but I spent a month after that doing practice problems, did you try solving the SOA 152?

I have not tried SOA 152, but i have a thorough understanding of chapters 1-6 in ACTEX, which limited understanding of how to do transformations and joint distribution problems.

How did TIA help you in particular? (compared to ACTEX)
