Default Tip for FMM

I'm in the process of finishing up the module right now.

I highly recommend that if you're doing this module, you save the transcripts of the multiple model audio tours (available as pdfs off of the module slides).

Are you currently working on the EOM exercise or just finishing up reading the slides?

Do you mind if I ask you a question about Section 3 exercise? There seems to be a repeated entry in the table...

Don't worry about repeated entries, it is just the SOA's preference for the presentation of the table.

For all modules, I think that if you feel something is incorrect/suboptimal with the instructions or material provided, you should first complete the task assuming it is correct. If you still feel that something is lacking, you can add a qualifying comment in your memo describing how you would improve the provided model in the future or how your results would change if you interpreted the assignment differently.

Deviating from the instructions in any way is not something I would generally recommend.
