    I’m setting unknown variable to an initial estimate. Then continue problem as normal with that estimate. Then change estimate to get answer I need.

    So basically doing a goal seek and skipping the algebra

    Not sure about full manual . Only got Mahler Seminar slides. It explains concepts well but it doesn’t have as many practice qualitative questions as Coaching actuaries.

    For qualitative questions Coaching actuaries is quite good. I would get a short subscription on it and just filter on qualitative questions in their question bank

    “With these exams, it’s not about how well you did in general, it’s about how well you did relative to others”

    Thats complete BS if true. CAS has said the pass mark for a minimally qualified candidate is determined prior to the exam even being taken. Just cause a bunch of people did well doesn’t mean they should then adjust pass mark.

    The pass ratios SHOULD be higher for 2020 given the cancellations, people generally having more time to study etc.

    I’d definetly appeal if youre confident you passed. You’re right there’s no transparency but no other option unfortunately
