Default Anyone know, to what degree will we need to memorize distribution functions for IFM?

For various distributions, Poisson, binomial, etc.

I don't see it on the syllabus, but some practice questions in the ASM manual require it.

We recommend students to be familiar with binomial, uniform, Poisson, and exponential. The Toby White study note uses Poisson and exponential distribution in its Monte Carlo example, and thus Poisson and exponential distributions can definitely be tested.
