This is an even harder question to answer, because the exams keep changing. Back when I was a student, a lot of folks gave up with Part 4, which was Life Contingencies using a textbook of the same name by Jordan.

And after the prelims, there is a lot more variation in the fellowship exams, because of the SOA/CAS split and the different SOA tracks.

I should keep these four permanently.
