Think of it like a movie. The Torah is the first one, and the New Testament is the sequel. Then the Qu'ran comes out, and it retcons the last one like it never happened. There's still Jesus, but he's not the main character anymore, and the messiah hasn't shown up yet.

Jews like the first movie but ignored the sequels, Christians think you need to watch the first two, but the third movie doesn't count, Moslems think the third one was the best, and Mormons liked the second one so much they started writing fanfiction that doesn't fit with ANY of the series canon."

Some study notes I've written are available FREE in the Austin Study Notes section of my website http://www.actuarialseminars.com . Those relevant in fall 2008 for Exam C/4 are
"Mixture distributions in Exams MLC/3 and C/4" and "LogNormal stock-price models".

If I have time, and if I discover I really, really, REALLY love actuarial science, I may update these notes at some point in the future.
As an ASM user, I found this notes to be very helpful. Thanks! You

Post MS Word Version of Section 12 of The Actuary's Free Study Guide for Exam 4/C

Greetings.

At the invitation of one of AO's staff members, I am experimenting with offering one of the sections of my free study guide for Exam 4/C in Microsoft Word format.

The attached document contains Section 12: Exam-Style Questions on the Central Limit Theorem, Skewness, Percentile Matching, and Ogives -- also available at the following URL: http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...ral.html?cat=4

The entirety of my study guide to date can be accessed here: http://progressofliberty.today.com/4c-study-guide/

If this manner of offering will result in a significant spillover of visitation onto my webpages, I will offer more of my study guide sections in MS Word format. Feel free to download and share this chapter with others.

Sincerely,
G. Stolyarov II

With some contributions from G. Stolyarov II, I have decided to expand on what I did for MFE by doing the same for C.

Notes can be found on my Mathematics reference forum - GAMMA Mathematics.

Default Loss Models Summary

I hate how wordy a lot of Loss Models is, so I tried to simplify the text as much as possible. The majority of this is just definitions and theorems. I've thrown in a few examples and expanded a few sections. This is just a initial version. Once I'm happy with it, I'll post it in the study notes section. In the end some sections turned out to be really long - some longer than Loss Models.

Features: [examC-index.pdf]
- Index
- Table of Contents
- Detailed calculator tricks
- Appendix with examples of "exact credibility"
- Slightly different treatment of Buhlmann material
- 60 pages (sorry trees).
- Flashcards (separate file)

Source is include - please edit and post changes as needed. (Please include my name as well though - don't take all the credit for yourself). I had to break the figures into a separate zip file as this forum has a 100Kb limit.

Note: it's tough to edit notes after you've taken a exam. So some of the stuff I added after the exam isn't as good as other parts (multi-dec/large data sets).

Description of attached files:
flashcards.pdf - flashcards - self explanitory
- You can download the individual JPG version here (docs.google.com).
examC-index.pdf - Main document.

There's no need to download these:
ExamC-figures.zip - Figures require to "compile" source .tex file (if you want to edit source).
ExamC-source.zip - Source .tex file to edit content - update/make changes.
