From a European perspective it's hard to understand why the US Health Care Reform creates such a fuzz.

Behind Health Care Reform
At first sight one might think American values were somehow at stake, as UCLA's Dr. Marc Nuwer, a leading expert on national health care reform, stated back in 2008:
  • "To heal our ailing health care system, we need to stop thinking like Americans."

(Exam P) November 2013

Posted 08-30-2013 at 06:49 PM by thenamesBond

I am sitting for exam P for the first time in November (12th). I have about 10 weeks from Monday (2nd Sept) to study from scratch.
Would this be enough?

I have done 1st year calculus and have done a little bit of multivariable calculus recently. Little experience with probability. Suggestions? Thoughts?

Taking exam P in May 2014 (2nd Time)

Posted 01-20-2014 at 12:16 AM by thenamesBond

Hi all, I sat for exam P in November 2013 for the first time, to see how the exam is structured and how hard is it. I failed that exam, because I didn't study for it enough.

However, I am now more serious about these exams and recently started studying for exam P. I am planning to write it in May 2014. My question is, Is it too tough to pass actuarial exams if you haven't been studying Actuarial Science in College/University. I am an Economics major in University. I have taken Calculus...
