    There is a significant difference between Predictive analysis “PA” and advanced topic in predictive analysis “ATPA”. PA is about the usage of algorithms in predictive analytics whereas ATPA is about the theory and methodology of predictive analytics.

    ATPA is an obligatory course for those aspiring to pursue a career in predictive analytics. It is offered as a part of the SAS Institute’s Graduate Analytics program.

    These are great resources for actuaries who want to learn more about R! The videos are clear and concise, and the final dashboard is a great example of what can be accomplished with R.

    I actually need this page very badly because I’m missing a few months from 2020 and Moody’s won’t give me the rates without paying for a subscription service.

    What is the cost of a subscription to Moody’s?

    You are not required to use R for data exploration, but it is encouraged. You can use Excel to do a lot of data exploration, but R is a more powerful tool.

    There is no set rule when it comes to discussing recent exam failures when interviewing for a job. While some may feel that it is inappropriate to bring up such personal information during an interview, others may feel that it is important to let the hiring manager know that you are aware of your weaknesses and that you are actively working to improve them. Ultimately, it is up to the individual interviewing you to decide whether or not discussing your recent exam failures is appropriate, and it is important to be honest and open in order to show that you are committed to improving.
