Default Want a Head Start on LTAM? The ASM Study Manual is Available Now

The SOA LTAM ASM Manual by Dr. Abraham Weishaus is now available!

ASM Study Manual for LTAM - Long-Term Actuarial Mathematics,
WITH StudyPlus+ Online Study Tools
1st edition | Dr. Abraham Weishaus

Sample Available - Click Here

ASMís LTAM manual offers comprehensive coverage of the syllabus for the new SOA Exam LTAM. In its 75 lessons, the following topics are reviewed:
  • Survival models
  • Insurances
  • Annuities
  • Premiums
  • Reserves
  • Markov chains
  • Multiple decrement models
  • Multiple life models
  • Estimating mortality rates and transition intensities
  • Pensions
  • Profit tests
The 1st edition of the manual has over 2000 pages and over 1800 end-of-lesson exercises, including over 750 original and 1050 old exam questions, plus over 350 examples and 90 in-lesson exercises. In addition to these exercises, there are thirteen practice exams, all having 20 multiple choice and 6-7 written answer questions, just like the real exam. An appendix has a cross reference to help you track down lessons corresponding to the SOA 322 sample questions and questions from released exams 2000 and later, and there is an index. Many students have found these manuals adequate by themselves for exam preparation, but the textbook for the exam is referenced in each lesson if you wish to use it.

So the only difference is this extra section about "Estimating mortality rates and transition intensities," which is Kaplan-Meier stuff that got copy-pasted from C? And everything else is the current MLC syllabus?

Weird decision from the SOA to change the exams for that...
