Probably going to start studying soon.

Plan is to finish modules up to the IA before I really start studying for this. Then do my IA right after MLC and finish the FA before the end of the year. Then I would get my ASA before 7/1. Would also mean that I am going to be taking Life Pricing exam Spring 2018......lol

Had the exact same plan as you, except issue is I have made zero progress in my modules as of today...

Also you can't attempt FA until your IA is marked, which takes about 2 months, so you probably wont be able to finish FA by the end of the year..

Didn't realize that.

Well I really really doubt I will take my IA before MLC so I guess I'll take my FA as soon as I pass my IA and hope for the best!


also I have always used ASM+ADAPT/Mahler PE, I managed to get ASM+TIA for MLC, has anyone had experience using both? Probably going to do my ASM manual as a first pass then watch the TIA videos. When I get closer to my exam I'll probably just use one.


also modules suck. Hoping to finish 3 this weekend. who knows though.

The LHS is the probability that a person age 0 survives x + t years to age x + t.

The RHS is the probability that a person age 0 survives x years to age x, and then this person age x survives t years to age x + t.

Thank you. Also, given this information, when it says "It shows that we can interpret the probability of survival from age x to age x+t as the product of"

*to be inline with equation 2.4 wouldnt it have to say "survival from age 0 to age x+t as the product of"?

So it turns out that when I checked the 2nd edition, it is saying the correct thing which is from age 0 to age x+t.

Dodged a bullet there.

Why divide by dx when using the limit definition for the force of mortality?
