Default New Study Materials - Video Lectures

Happy New Year!

I am working on developing a set of study materials for exam PA in conjunction with a world-class professor of statistics.

If you could take this <1 min survey to let us know what's most important to you, it would help us greatly in delivering quality materials for the next sitting.

Regards,
Alex

I don't know if it's my browser or not, but the last question doesn't let me pick the same rating for multiple items.

Do you have a rough time for release and will they be sold through ACTEX?

Dkamka,

Thanks for your interest!

We are currently working with the Actuarial Bookstore and should have a formal product description posted within the next 2 weeks. We'll have more information about release date and specific content shortly.

Default UPDATE

Predictive Partners will offer new study materials for exam PA through the Actuarial Bookstore. Product descriptions will be released in the next 2-3 via the Bookstore.

Overview:

1) A 2-day live online seminar will be offered the first week of June, about 2 weeks before the exam. This seminar will work through a sample project (to be distributed well in advance) and will provide a review of the predictive analytics material, as well as ample time for detailed Q & A

2) A 20-hour video series covering all relevant predictive analytics content with examples, a walk-through of past SOA exams, and a comprehensive practice project.

Both of these products will feature predictive analytics expert and award winning teacher, Professor Richard Waterman, Ph.D., of the world-renowned Wharton Business School.
