is this a good recovery risk example - increased unemployment leads to more hit and runs and reduced third party recoveries for a motor book of business

It's creative, and probably technically right. Might be a little worried the grader doesn't immediately accept the higher unemployment => greater chance of hit and run assumption though.

The RF problems seem easier than the material. I read posts complain about exam questions testing in depth understanding of concepts. Does RF problem bank suffice for both math and essay problems?

That's surprising you think they're easier since people usually say the RF problems help a ton. If you feel like they aren't sufficient, just do the actual past exam problems as well I guess

I've fallen behind, got bogged down in Taylor and then took a whole week off. Need to catch up this weekend. My schedule had me finishing up Marshall and Teng& Perkins this weekend, but I need to finish Taylor, and read all of Verral, Siewart and Saha. I know for a fact that I didn't understand Saha last year when I thought I did, so gonna need to spend more time on that one.

First step is to accept his name is too tricky to remember so it is permanently changed to Saha
