Well I never got around to typing out a Discrete Table...If you like this one for continuous distros and want a matching one for discrete, PM me or respond and I'll make one and put it on here. Although I am sure these tables and posted and reposted on here. Make your own! It will help solidify it in your memory!

Default Exam P Notes: Formula summary

Here are the notes I created when I studied for Exam P. I absolutely over studied for that exam so I feel this notes are fairly complete. They include only formulas, no distribution tables.

Good Luck.

Default Exam P formula sheet

Here is the formula sheet I used to study for exam P. It doesn't include the formulas for each specific distribution (I built a spreadsheet for those) but it does include many of the other formulas one needs to know. Enjoy.

The sum of n consecutive integers is not , it is
I guess technically Pr(X = x) = 0 is correct since the integral of any f(x) from a to a is 0. However, it is not proper to write a continuous distribution in such a way. That is why the integer correction must be used when using the normal to approximate a binomial.

The point was that it was written incorrectly as it was since P(X = x) = 0 for any cont. dist. Why are you bringing in continuity correction into what I said...

Thanks for your helpful notes. A special thanks to aminesky's distribution summary and blackdog29's notes as they were especially helpful.

Wink My Exam P note (4 pages only)

This is my Exam P note, only 4 pages, but enough to pass Exam P!
Not so good... you are allowed to edit and make your own.
The source of this 4-pages note is SOA 140 and AO.
However, please give me a feedback
I hope that it will help you pass Exam P too!
