Based on the syllabus it looks like ~1-2 per exam

With all the changes this exam has gone through, does anyone know which of the SOA sample questions/solutions is the correct one for this sitting? i.e. the ones that do not include Itos lemma, Brownian motion, etc. and has all the actual stuff we will get tested on? thanks in advance

Go to https://www.soa.org/education/exam-r...fe-detail.aspx. Click on March 2018 syllabus. Scroll to the last page. There are three links to the sample questions that include only questions that are still relevant to the March 2018 exam.
