No. Some C moved to LTAM, but no MLC moved to STAM.

Default STAM seminar

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

In case you are interested, my face-to-face STAM exam-prep seminar starts 16 August. I've spent several hundred hours updating my C/4 seminar (and MLC seminar) for STAM (and LTAM, respectively) and am all set to help people get over the hump.

[Over the nearly 25 years of my seminars, seminar pass rates have averaged higher than the world-wide pass rates, and hundreds of people have e-mailed me that the seminar is what made the difference for them.]

For detailed information on the seminar, see http://www.actuarialseminars.com .

Hello everyone.

I am in for October STAM. Will studying STAM manual and using ADAPT on Coaching Actuaries be enough? Do you guys think we need textbooks? I never took C before.

Hello, is anyone using TIA for STAM? If so, what is your method for memorizing the methods and formulas? (I noticed I can get through the material quickly.... but I forget things from past chapters just as fast)

I am trying TIA for the first time per my friend's recommendation but I miss the CA formula sheets which helped me memorize in the past. I might just buy one separately

Hi guys,

Do you think it is better to take Exam C in October or in February (the second time it is administered)?

Is there a study note on "Property/Casualty Insurance Coverages"? I am looking through the syllabus and I am not seeing where this section is being pointed to.

Chapter 2 of the Brown & Lennox textbook, plus the Leida & Blum study note on medical coverages.

Thank you.

On another note, kindly explain the concept behind: if a policy has a deductible and the probability of a loss below the deductible is not zero then not every loss is paid.

If the deductible is, say, d=100, and Pr[X <= 100] = 20%, say, then on average 20% of the losses are below 100 and so the insured pays the whole loss and the insurance company pays 0 in those cases.

Thank you for the clarification.
