Default New STAM Material - New Study Manual

Have you taken SOA Exam C previously and just need a manual for the new material?

Do you have a second hand manual and don’t wish to purchase a new full manual?

Do you have an updated manual but want an intuitive explanation of the new P&C topics from an experienced P&C Actuary?

You are in luck! My new partial manual covering the newly added STAM topics is now available at the links below.

Actuarial Bookstore

Actex/Mad River Books

The bulk of the new material on STAM is P&C specific—this is my area of expertise as I am an experienced P&C Actuary and author of a popular CAS Exam 5 seminar where this material is covered in much more detail.

Hi James, I was hoping to see a sample chapter to show your text and presentation.

A sample section is attached (there are only ~4 chapters in this section of the syllabus, so I'm not posting a whole chapter).

Hi Jim, I was looking at your solution to Section A question 9.
------------
Mr. Trout purchases and automobile policy from LAA Ins. Co with 250,000 third party liability coverage, a 1,500 OTC deductible and 1,000 collision deductible.

Mr. Trout is at fault in an accident and is liable for injuries caused to the other driver of 275,000.

In addition, it costs 15,000 to repair Mickey's car, and $18,000 of legal fees are incurred. Calculate the total amount LAA Ins. Co. pays out for this occurrence.
---------------

It is my understanding that collision payment is to the insured and not a 3rd party, and therefore I was not expecting the payment of 14,000 by LAA, am I right? If Mickey is the same person as Mr. Trout, then that would be okay, I believe, but the question does not state so. Please clarify, thanks.

Sorry, good catch--"Mickey's" should be replaced by "Mr. Trout's" in this problem (Mickey was the name used in the prior problem and carried forward here by accident).

Thanks!
