Default PEC 2018

Figured I could start a thread for this year's PEC. No exams, yeah!!

Who's with me? Who actually managed to get accommodations at the official hotel? Who hasn't yet booked accommodations or travel yet and need suggestions (me)?

No, exam but have you looked at pre-reading? ~1600 pages of reading!! Then homework. I am having second thoughts.

Successful Completion of PEC 2018
In order to successfully complete PEC candidates must:
Attend all sessions attendance will be taken.
Not miss more than 10 minutes of course time over the two days.
Complete and submit all assigned homework in accordance with the instructions provided.
Candidates will receive a certificate upon successful completion of PEC.
I am just curious about the "homework" part. Are they going to grade it right there?

Which track is this for?

For the retirement track, there's a lot of bulletins and publications (so not textbook, really) - but a large majority were covered in the FSA-level exams so the typical attendee should already be familiar with most of the material.

As for homework - honestly, not sure, but it sounds like take-home tasks will be assigned and required to be turned in at some point during or after the PEC... is this new for this year?

Will await more information regarding this + the case study.

I was page counting Finance/Investment track, but I had excluded general session.
