The assigned reading for Mod 4 is Chapter 5, pages 174 to 224, so that's all I was planning on reading. Guess I'll take a look at Table 4.2 now as well.

also am i seeing something or store 30 really has 30 salaried employees in 2012 (think it should be 3) and store 11 has no salaried employees in 2012 - do we really need to fire the intern that created this

I might email the SOA tomorrow since it is trying to download the file as a XLS instead of a XLSX

Are you talking about this: https://www.safaribooksonline.com/li...9781118023303/

I haven't used that myself, I'm borrowing a physical copy from my company's actuarial library.

I'm beginning to question whether the monkeys were actually trained or not.

Apparently there is no review of work produced by interns.

Did you define why you thought the likelihood or severity fit in the low/med/high category, or just list low/medium/high?
