It's a good idea that I will use going forward if there are changes. The combined manual is date stamped.

Maybe I'm blind, but is there not a way to download as a PDF? My main question earlier about having a combined manual was because I use my iPad to go through manuals and usually do it offline (on subway/train).

There should be a download link below the PDF frame.
If it's not there and you have a computer that does it, you can print to PDF.

I only see a download link under the Overview page. Would it be possible to add one under each section?

Hi All and Happy Monday!
Just wanted to clear up a couple of common questions Iíve been getting:
  • Access: Once you purchase the manual through the main site, if youíve not already signed up for a Teachable account, you need to do that. Usually that will give you nearly automatic access to all the lessons, but sometimes it doesnít take and I need to do it manually. So, if itís been a few hours and you have a Teachable account but still donít have access, please e-mail me.
  • For those who asked about hard copies, there are combined manuals that I moved to the top of the lessons. You can download and print on your own as you wish, but check caveats!
As always, let me know if any other questions/comments/suggestions.
Thanks,
Crystal

Default Bodoff Addition

Hi all - I added a Bodoff Addendum to the top section in the Teachable lectures. It contains a couple of examples evaluating the double integrals and a bit of explanation that hopefully helps to clarify that concept.

Also, Go Pats!

Something looks off in the BKM Chapter 16, except 16.2 (Managing Bond Portfolios), BKM Chapter 16 Review Exercises, BKM Chapter 16 Review Exercises, and Goldfarb (Risk-Adjusted Performance Measurement for P&C Insurers) sections. Font looks a bit funky. Is it just me?

Not sure why the font gets wonky when I PDF from my other computer. I re-upped those and few others; hopefully no issues now.
