Submitted 5/26
MMR 7/2

Thanks, that's what I was thinking too. Does anyone have any idea when the SOA plans on releasing the new syllabus? I'm hoping it's earlier than they would for a normal Fall exam, since this will be...

No, I took DP 3 times. Sorry, I should have mentioned that. So I'm thinking my chances of passing CSP in the spring aren't great.

I'm using the MATE manual from last sitting, which says $130,000. The manual says that it's based off of the 7th edition of Rosenbloom, but I guess it isn't. Sorry, didn't realize that had changed.

Yes, I think they have intentionally put some mistakes in before. But it seems strange that they would tell us the wrong way to use those tables when it's not really clear how they should be used.

Quite a bit has changed. They got rid of that asset share model and added a bunch of stuff at the end. Everything from pg 46 on is new.

After looking through it, I'm a bit confused about how they...

Thanks, that makes more sense. I was looking at it assuming the Claims Paid column was only for claims incurred in that month.

I think the problem could be when they updated the case study for 2011 they moved the dates forward by one year, but didn't change the data. So the current case study is not going to match the years...

Thanks so much! I was about to try bribing Mark by promising to only buy MATE products in the future (which I will probably be doing anyway) if he'd give me some info about this chapter.
