I started to think it will be CBT, like exam 5 in 2018. It would be hard for people with kids running around at home. For people living in apt buildings, wifi could be slow as everyone in the building is working from home/playing video games/streaming movies. I really hope they can manage to get more rooms to hold the exam in paper. If they ever give the option to take remotely or in person, I'd definitely go in person.

I'll just wear a mask if I have to. I don't want to deal with worrying about technology issues.

When adjusting heteroecthesious data for a partial first development period, is the reason we half future incremental claims because we don’t want to reserve an annual year of losses for an incomplete exposure period (ie we haven’t yet provided coverage so instead it’s an UEPR)? Referring to Shapland

I believe that's correct. We're only interested in estimating the loss reserves, not UEPR. I haven't got back to Shapland for this time through yet though.

Just finished up Venter and I feel like I've pretty much mastered everything up through it now. (Brosius, both Mack papers, Hurlimann, Venter).

Shapland will go down as the longest I’ve spent on any paper in my exam career. Granted I haven’t studied much out of my company time, but I’ve been on this sucker close to a month. It’s just SO dense.

I agree it's dense. The spreadsheet model that accompanies it (the one that the Milliman legal team made them program in a disclaimer you have to agree to every time you open) was really helpful to my getting through it and seeing the ideas used in a tangible way.

Sorry if this has been answered already, but is it possible to get access to Brehm without getting the study kit?
