Finished opening lesson on reserves yesterday and hope to get through the next 2 today. I'm actually ahead of my schedule that I set for myself, we'll see if this continues..


The concepts really aren't too bad I feel like, it's more just being able to relate how the formulas to one another. I need to make sure I look through my note cards atleast one time a day from here on out.

Lesson 32 is the worst of the reserves section. I wish SOA would drop the lesson 32 material from the syllabus.

LOL. Wait until you get to the Hattendorf stuff.

If I have the lessons correct, the Three Premium Principle is pretty important.

I got a question using that, and one using some recursive variance of reserves stuff. Once you finish the manual and do lots of problems/SOA 289/sample exams, you'll have done a ton of problems on this stuff and should be good with it. There were a lot of formulas though in the Reserves section, using the insurance, annuity, and premium symbols. The only thing to do is to keep using those formulas - it will get better. Good luck!

A bit of studying will fix that, though.

ch.38 is also quite confusing, but not as bad as reserve.

Quiz 28-1 - why can't you just use the fact that Ax:n = Px:n/(Px:n + d) ?

I can't figure out how to get angles so Ax:n would be Term life insurance of x for n years and Px:n is respective premium.
