I know there have been slight updates to Exam C. Are the notes Dr. Calc posted the most up to date of all listed here?

There were recent additions to the syllabus in October 2013. He posted his notes from October 2011...

So the answer is no; even though those notes still cover a good majority of the syllabus content. JBondy's concise study sheet is the most up to date here though.

Hi guys. I really need to know that how you compare by scores, real exam with SOA 290 and ASM sample exams. I asked that some times but it is not still clear for me. I want a comparison of level of difficulty. Thanks

Does anyone have / know where I can find study notes specific to types of questions that might be ask to test understanding of concepts (i.e. non-computational questions).

For example, questions around various test statistics, consistency, coherent, bias, asymptotic bias etc.. to name a few.

I just want to brush up on that to ensure I don't miss any easy questions that might come up.

For Exam 4/C? I doubt there will be any questions like that on the test.

I have been using a combination of the adapt formula sheet and http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...2&postcount=40.
I add some notes but they work great in tandem.

I'm sure this response to his 4 month old question will be very helpful.

Especially given he passed the exam already.
