Anyone want to make a guess what the written answer questions will be about? I know speculating doesn't really help, but it makes me feel better.

I'm guessing one of CBD, individual/interval-based estimation or cubic splines will appear as they have not been tested yet in the previous sittings of LTAM

1) Valuing Health Benefits
2) Markov Chains/Multiple State Models
3) CBD or Lee Carter
4) Profit Testing
5) KM, NA, Exact-Actuarial Exposure for large Data

definitely one pension benefit question, one premium question possibly with portfolio percentile premium calculation, one reserve question with modified reserve calculation at the end.

this is my guess as they have been very popular in previous exams

I definitely agree with this. I'm also thinking a CBD or cubic spline.

Markov chains and profit tests are important, but it seems those are usually part of a written answer problem, not the whole problem.

I'm really hoping for no Kaplan-Meier or Nelson-Aalen stuff!

If you have sat for old C exam before, they are like freebies

I tried the Fall 2018 exam today. I got 17/20 for the MC and 38.25/56 for the WA, for a total of 75%. I'm very more comfortable now than I was after taking the first 2 ASM exams ahah!

Have you finally tried the Spring 2019? I will do it tomorrow. If you tried it, how was it, compared to Fall 2018?
