Please correct me if I'm wrong but this is what I think is going on... I think the AAA is the entity that says if an actuary is qualified to do certain work. Usually the AAA takes its cues from the...

Its not much of a change for the ratemaking and reserving exam either. Most of the pages just replace pages already present in the source material.

I don't think there will be a feud. I don't see a reason why they can't coexist.

Does anyone know what this means for what a FSA GI actuary can do? As far as the NAIC is concerned, does this mean...

I will have to pay my own way so I don't want to get caught in a syllabus change if I end up not taking the next exam this sitting.

That would be nice but I don't have that luxury. That's why I don't want to make a mistake here and bite off more than I can chew.

Really? Just seems rushed. 400-450 hours of study time for an FSA exam seems like what people are saying to prepare. That is 3 hours a day every day for 4-5 months.

Waiting on FSA exam results/strategies for next exam

Hi all,

I just took my first FSA written exam in May. It really stinks that you have to wait so long for the results to be published. I felt good about it but I can see the results going either...

Fall 2017 Exam #12d

I'm trying to understand something here. Either the solution is wrong or I am wrong. Chances are I'm wrong but I can't seem to wrap my head around why.

I'm not going to write the whole solution...

I should have said something about that. I updated my opening comment to clarify. I took exam P way back in 2011 but things were a lot different then. Curious about recent trends.

It looks like you are referencing ASA material. I think it makes sense to put the more general material there that covers multiple lines of insurance.

I'm curious where else you are seeing non-casualty material? Are you referring to the financial economics and ERM modules?
