Default About Module 4

Dose anyone know how to combine the all task together?
Or we should write each task as an email separately rather than a memo include 4 task?
Because I realize that all 4 tasks are happened in different period, it is really difficult to combine all tasks together.

Write up each task separately (either in email or memo format according to the task), but place all 4 write-ups in one document instead of submitting 4 different files.

Thanks for the quick reply!
Do you mean that write the task seperately in one memo?
I suppose to construct my memo like this:
1. Introduction
2. Data & Assumption
3. Model
4. Analysis
Task1 blablabla..
Task2 blablabla..
Task3 blablabla..
Task4 blablabla..
5. Conclusion & Recommendation

Is this seem to be appropriate?

they have specific instructions on how to structure it. they specifically say to write 4 memos/emails, but to put it in one file. why would you do it any other way?

Thanks! But I didn't realize where the specification of structure instruction is.
May I ask which page do they specific the strcture instruction?

Under the "Purpose and Goal" section, it says "NOTE - When submitting your work, place all four tasks in a single Microsoft Word document."

Then under each task, it tells you what format it wants for that particular task - list, email, memo, etc. Follow the format the assignment tells you to use and put all of your tasks in a single Word Doc. Since they don't specify a structure for the memo task, I just did an informal memo with sections I thought were appropriate.

Does anyone can give a recommendation about task 2?
I feel confused about how could we judge whether the data could be used in developing the baseline company value?
The data is the excel worksheet? And ASOP#23 is actuarial standard of practice No.23?

Any help would be appreciated!

Just do it yourself. You've asked so many questions at this point.

this is not difficult stuff you're asking and a lot of it can be found by searching via the tags.

this one has been discussed before. search the tags before asking people stuff or just think about it. some of your questions are very basic.
