Exam 5 - Spring 2020
 
First time upper level exam here and excited to get some partial credit and show off my penmanship.

I'm personally starting by reading Friedland, hoping to maintain my momentum and enthusiasm off the MAS-II pass (I think).

Congrats on the (potential) pass.

Good luck with the next Exam.

If you're currently working in Reserving, then Friedland is a good starting place.

If you're working in pricing or reinsurance, you might find reading through Werner & Modlin a better use of your (uncertain) time. :-)

Joining this thread as a first time Exam 5 taker, coming off of an MAS-1 pass (finally). I'm working at a consulting firm where we do both pricing and reserving (heavier on the pricing side), so I'm actually "looking forward" to this exam.

In for this to, will start with Werner and Modlin. Anyone know which study materials they're going to get later.

I heard TIA is the best for 5. I'm going to read the source materials entirely and use TIA as a supplement... likely how I finally crushed MAS-1.

Bedford is great as well. Would highly recommend his material.

I'm trying to eat my vegetables before I get full on dessert on this exam. :)

Looking at Bedford vs TIA websites undecided, I just noticed TIA is stating the exam date for spring is April 24, 2020. I didn't even know they released 2020 dates yet, can't find it on casact.org. Anyone know if that's legit?

I'm guessing either one will be adequate, but I won't get permission from work to pay for one until I get official pass results on the last sitting, so I'm just planning to read source material until that comes in. I'll probably just watch sample videos from both and pick whichever one has a voice I think I can tolerate longer.
