Default Exam STAM relevant practice problems.

A bunch of topics on Exam STAM coincide with material on CAS Exam 5. Maybe someone should figure out what questions on the practice questions are relevant, possibly useful study resource. I might volunteer.

Here is a link to the problems for anyone interested:

These don't look like CAS Exam 5 at all, they look like old exam C, and on the CAS side - MAS-I (maybe MAS-II as well but mostly MAS-I).

The MAS-I forum is over here:
MAS-I

Questions 308-323 and 326.

These are all basic for Exam 5, but some may find them useful to glance at when learning the material.

Old Exam C had some material that was relevant and preparatory for determining increased limits factors.


Given that STAM is SOA-specific, I doubt that there will be much there that is going to be very relevant to Exam 5 (as Mr. Mahler identifies, some 17 problems!).


I'll bet that you'll find a lot more relevant material on MAS-I/II that will be more beneficial to Exam 5 than hunting in SOA material for it.

Fair enough, I decided to cut my losses about 4/5 of the way through.
