Default Notes for Exam 3/M

See in attachment a pretty decent set of notes.

Disclaimer:
i) There are a few typos I can remember of.
ii) I took the exam during the Fall 2005, I don't know
how relevant the material covered in these notes is to
the current syllabus.

Default SOA157 - Posted Actuarial Exams Concordance and Discrepancies

Although this may exist elsewhere, I haven't seen it. The SOA 157 sample questions were just old posted exam questions. This is a pdf file that matches the problems. It should be clear how to read the file. For example, the file indicates problem number 49 from the SOA 157 sample questions is the same as number 24 from the November 2002 exam, whereas problem number 95 from the SOA 157 sample questions is no longer being tested on MLC.

The second file indicates some differences between the two groups of problems.

This is the notes I used for Fall 2007 sitting of CAS 3 exam. Given the volume of materials on CAS 3, I find understanding concepts more important than memorizing formulas and facts. Therefore, my notes are written in a way that it deemphasizes memorization and develops understanding of concepts. For example there are many proofs and intuition to understanding equations that help me in deriving formulas from basic principles during an exam. If you have a good memory, flashcard is a good alternative. This should cover all materials on the new 3L and 3F exams.

Default MLC study sheet

I used this to help memorize things. I did one similar for P (two pages) and FM (two pages) - as opposed to 11 pages for this MLC sheet. I've distributed it around my office so it has been reviewed and corrected -as you can see it's in its 19th "edition"; however, I'm not sure it's 100% error free. Mostly, I'm just thrilled that I will never ever have to look at it again. However, I'll be doing the same for Exam C in the fall.

I found that it was very helpful to prepare this "cheat pamphlet" - it contains basically all the formulas that I tended to forget when working problems. It covered a decent number of problems on the test, but it's by no means exhaustive.

TeX is pretty nice for preparing stuff like this - I like the lifecon package: Style file, and here is the User's Guide.

If someone has the time they should do a write up that includes the new material. I find the manual doesn't give the most general equations for things either so if it could include those that would be swell. I neither possess the LateX know how nor the free time to do it and I'm sure many would appreciate it if it were done.
