Why did I create this?

When I was taking the preliminary exams, I used many video courses along the way. None of them met all of my expectations so I set out to make one that would. This is it and I hope those who use it feel the same way.

The material on Exam 1/P is arguably the most important to master both for the other preliminary exams and to be a competent actuary. This is only amplified with upcoming curriculum changes. Itís crucial to choose the best resources to learn from.

What makes these videos better?

Accurate: Thereís nothing more frustrating than having to catch an instructorís mistakes when youíre trying to learn something for the first time! These lessons were carefully constructed and peer reviewed to ensure accuracy and eliminate typos.

Concise: Youíre busy. Thatís why videos are appealing. You donít want long winded improvised explanations. These lessons and problem videos are packed with valuable information and lack redundancy to maximize your efficiency. Every minute of every video has a purpose: to teach you something new and useful. I donít waste your time.

Results are supported: Youíll truly understand and believe the results because I substantiate them. Iíve spent years determining the most efficient and convincing way to support each result without any loss of precision. The benefits to this approach are numerous and include:

1. Saving time studying - you donít need to work as many practice problems when you understand the concepts better because youíre not solely depending on familiarity to get the right answers on exam day.

2. Greater confidence - thereís no reason to second guess yourself when you can reason out the results youíre using. Being calm and confident on exams translates to better scores. Youíre also more likely to see applications of these concepts to your work as an actuary.

3. Greater retention - when things make sense, they stick with you and thatís important when you take other exams or need them at work.

Multiple solutions to practice problems: I will often provide 2 or even 3 different solutions to practice problems. This increases your confidence in using approaches that are less natural to you. This can save you time if one approach is quicker or reduce your chance of making a mistake if you have time to use multiple approaches on the same problem.

If you use my formula sheets or videos please consider posting what you think in this thread, in a comment on the course page or send me an email. Iíd love to hear from you.

Good luck with your studies!
