I noticed I had "financial institution" in my profile as my undergraduate school for some reason. Is this going to be a problem?

I made a request to change that to my current employer....

I am getting ready to start studying for exam MAS-1 later this fall. I still have version 3 of the ASM exam S manual and noticed there are chapters and text that have remained the same. Does anyone know if there is key of which chapters have been dropped from ASM Exam S from the new MAS-1 manual? I'm mostly wondering about Lesson 18 Continuous Markov Chains: Limiting Probabilities. Thank!

Hey Lee, how many more lessons are there left to be added under the Extended Linear Models section? It's been saying 90% complete for a couple of weeks and I'm almost all the way through, so I just want to make sure it was safe to finish before jumping into Time Series.

The only lessons left are the R-studio demonstrations. There will either be 5 or 6 of them, and the first three should come out this week. There will be an idea or two in those that you haven't seen, but most of it is just working through examples on the stuff from D.2-D.6
