Default Actuarial exams changing

Quote:
After a decade of relatively slow change, effective 1 January 2000 the professional actuarial exams will undergo a complete restructuring. In particular, the new structure replaces with one exam the two exams most commonly taken yearly by thousands of undergraduates wanting to test the actuarial waters.

This article outlines the changes of greatest interest to teachers and students of undergraduate mathematics and provides links to much more detailed information. The opinions and advice stated are those of the author, Jim Daniel; they do not necessarily reflect the view of the Mathematical Association of America, the Casualty Actuarial Society, or the Society of Actuaries.

The new Joint Exam 1 will cover calculus (at the level of the current Exam 100/1 but without the linear algebra) and probability (at the level of the current Exam 110/2 but without the statistics), with as many as possible of the questions placed in a risk management setting. The exam is currently planned to last three hours, with approximately 40 multiple-choice questions.
I'm looking for some sample material in order to prepare for the new Joint Exam 1. Does anybody have suggestions?

Where did you get that the Exam is still "Joint"?

Are you taking it in Colorado or Washington state?
