You could always make your own flashcards with Anki.

Anyone at TIA reading this? Would you consider offering the flashcards app as a stand alone purchase?
Sorry, but we don't have any plans to sell it separately.

This was probably the worst thing about the 2018 Fall sitting. And on top of the tables being incredibly small, it was also black text on a darker green sheet of paper, making it even harder to find and stay on the correct table value.

Double-sided, too.

One question required flipping over the same page like a dozen times. I dropped that paper like 3 times.

20/10 vision and I really struggled reading these tables.

Absolutely stupid.

Have you commented to the SOA about the difficulty of reading the tables? Size / color / two-sided? That might help future candidates.

I don't fully understand this problem. It is from 15th Edition ASM MLC manual.
11.13
Tx is the future lifetime random variable for (x). An insurance pays 1000 at the moment of death if the integral part of Tx is odd. Otherwise no benefit is paid. mu=.04 delta=.02. What is the expected present value.

I got the geometric series part, but missed the part about the payment being equal to the difference between a k-year and a k+1 year deferred insurance.

Is this because the payment is made at the moment of death? If so, I'm still fuzzy on how that works.
