Are you banking on it still happening?
For me I started studying, what ever happens happens.. I'll probably get my study days refunded if postponed.

Anyone start doing Module 7 or EMA 7?
Because there are some bugs in page 93, 96 and 97 which cannot download the pdf and excel files. Anyone encountered this?

Just like I replied to nicktheactuary, I'm on this now and wondering the same. Did you ever find any helpful readings?

Read the recommended chapters from Ratemaking and Loss Reserving. Those are the key.
