Hello everyone,
Would I have enough time to study for the spring LTAM sitting if I started studying today? I will not be working the next month, and then I will be starting a new job that I will not have study hours to use. I do not have much going on in that month off, so most of that time would be devoted to studying. Thank you in advance

I'm confused how a solution is calculating an annuity due with delta = .04. In the solution, they have the PV of the annuity equal to (1e^.04*T) / (.04/1.04). Is this incorrect? Shouldn't it be divided by just (1e^.04)?

What you wrote as the solution is weirdthe numerator looks as though you're dealing with a continuous annuity with delta = 0.04, while the denominator looks like an annuitydue with i = 0.04. Your suggestion of dividing by (1e^.04) would have you dividing by i if delta = 0.04.

The problem is from ASM MLC 15th edition (4th printing) question 31.3.
That was a typo, I meant I think it should be divided by (1e^0.04) = d

Okay, thanks! I have another question. This is just a concept check but the problem I have a question about is 38.1.
For a fully continuous 3year endowment insurance on (x) premiums are determined by the equivalence principle. Calculate Var(2L  T >=2 ). If this was a fully discrete problem, the answer would be zero correct?

I would say go for it, and if you aren't comfortable with the entire course by the registration deadline (march 25) then pass on this sitting and you'll have a head start for October. The sooner you can finish an exam the better.
