That is certainly a valid point.

Here are my notes from exam P. They follow the chapters from the BPP manual, but it shouldn't matter too much if you're trying to read them.
My chart for discrete distributions originally came from "TheTeacher" (thank you!) and then I made my own for continuous distributions (you'll notice that not all of are filled in since in the end I decided it wasn't worth it to memorize them all...which I suppose worked because I recieved a preliminary pass) Although I tried to check all the formulas, I'm sure there are mistakes in here... so I apologize in advance. I hope you can download these.. my computer has word 2007 and vista, the combination of which seems to make everything incompatible with everyone else so I had Tom upload it: http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/down...525notes2.xps (When this pops up on my computer it trys to open it as a .zip file, but if i save it to my computer and change the extention to .xps I can then open it)

I obviously neglected to put the "squares" in my (a+b+c)^2 formula the right side should be a^2 + b^2 + c^2 + 2ab + 2bc + 2ac and I got caught not updating my copy/paste on the sum of n consecutive integers. I also corrected the notation for the continuous probability function as I carried forward the f(x) = Pr(X=x) from my discrete formula sheet. For what it is worth corrected copies of those two files are attached here.

I found my old notes from last February, and thought I'd post them. The notes are in the pdf file, and were written using LaTeX. The zip file is the original .tex file for those that want to edit the notes.

Thanks a lot for all of the good notes! I used Christian's notes, fixed a few of the typos and added a few of the things that I thought I would forget.

I used a couple tables of distributions to help me memorize them. They are based on one posted here earlier. I forgot who posted it  my thanks and my apologies for not bothering to look up who it was. My version has a few additions and has different forms of some of the distributions  ones that I preferred.
