In example 63B, after finding E(Lq(75)) the solution for finding the variance uses Bernoulli simplification. I dont understand how Bernoulli applies here since the probabilities are 0.02 and 0.03 and not 0.3 and 0.7

Can you post the actual question? I assume it's one of the q=.02 With probability .7, etc. For these questions I always just make a table for E(L) and var(L) under each condition with the probabilities of .7 and .3 and since it's conditional on q you have to use the E(Var) + Var(E) formula. Say its 1 year term of 1000 with q=.03 with prob. 7 and q=.02 with prob .3, i=.06.. then the expected loss is 1000*.03/1.06  P or 1000*.02/1.06  P. There's only two possible outcomes so the var(E) portion can be done by that shortcut. But without knowing the question I have no idea. But I mean regardless of any of that the probabilities (weights in this case) will always sum up to 1.

It wouldn't surprise me to see a question on it. They tend to mix up the questions and they haven't tested it in a while.

In all seriousness though, we're only two weeks out, if you can make the time to at least memorize some concepts and formulas, that could get you some partial credit on a written answer question. But if it's a choice between this or universal life, I'd spend my time on UL.
