Default Recommended textbooks for IFM

I was just wondering if anyone has any good textbook recommendations, besides the McDonald and Berk textbooks listed on the syllabus.

Also, I have a copy of A Primer for the Mathematics of Financial Engineering, Dan Stefanica, from a college course I took, but Iím not sure how much itíll help when it comes to preparing for IFM.
Has anyone else used this before in their studies? How much of the exam material did it help with?

If you want to use textbooks, you should stick to the official textbooks stated in the SOA syllabus. Other textbooks may teach the concepts differently or include details that may or may not be relevant for the exam.
