Yeah, it gets the point across and it's easy enough to read. I would recommend it.

I was a little disappointed with my 8. My goal was a 7 so I could have a transcript of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. I now only have PA to fill in the gap.

No. Skipping through Module 1, there are recommended exercises in R to play around with the data. There are also slides that tell you to read a chapter: "Read Chapter 5 of R for Everyone."

I know Coaching Actuaries has opened up their SRM Adapt. But I wouldn't be ready for that point since I never learned the material. I would prefer to use ASM since I've used it for the past 5 exams...

My opinion would be to allow Adapt to "adapt" to where you're at. I think the best approach for this exam is to try every resource and I think you've exhausted SOA and Mahler. Adapt does have a...

Yes, the last part is a little different because you are essentially going from 150 to 150. So it is E[X^2] = 150^2. Or think of E[X^2] as Var(X) + E[X]^2. The variance of 150 here is 0. The...

Yes, the correct approach is to use E[X^2] = (b^3 - a^3) / (3(b-a)) for each interval. For the limited expected value piece, first rewrite the intervals with a maximum value of 150. Just be sure to...

You are correct that you should equate the two moments and not equate the variance.

5w + (1-w)*x = 7.5
50w + (1-w)*(2x^2) = 131.25

I solved for x = (7.5 - 5w)/(1-w). Plug this into the second...
