Post Considering Offering Exam Materials - Feedback?

Hey guys, I've been tutoring some students on exam FM recently using some of my old study notes and thought I'd come out here and ask for some thoughts and feedback.

I'm involved in an e-learning company and am considering putting together some actuarial exam focused courses and put this demo together. The link will take you to a video that's ~2 minutes 30 seconds in length.

https://bit.ly/2EjvBIz

My current thoughts are that the course's price point would be set at $29.99 and include probably 25-30 videos covering the topics for exam FM plus a handful walking through full-scale exam problems and real-world applications.

Any thoughts or feedback is appreciated!

With a low price point, you will likely have considerable success provided your material offers something that is not currently out there (e.g., explaining things in a different way).

I think one way you're likely to differentiate yourself is if you provide useful (potentially quirky) mnemonics for remembering how to do things.

Effective practice problems (not necessarily Exam level) can also be useful.
