Update schedule

August 29th, 2007

Now that the first sitting of the exam has come and gone, it is time to start getting ready for the November exam.  The bulk of the content of the seminar is remaining the same, but I will be adding more practice problems and exams, and going into more detail on a couple of topics.  In order to let you know what the changes are, I will be making roughly weekly blog updates with what is new.  I will mostly be adding stuff on weekends, and so I am going to try to make the blog updates on Sundays.

This coming weekend (Labor Day weekend), I am going to add a revised schedule for the November exam, plus some general tips for how to get the most out of the seminar.  You should always feel free to e-mail me with questions–the more interactive you make the seminar, the more you will get out of it.


Question 124 on SOA “123″

August 14th, 2007

The set of old exam problems formerly known as the SOA 123 now has 124 problems (although question 124 was only added on some copies of it, one of which is )  It seems a little curious that they would add exactly one extra question, so I recommend making sure that you know how to do this one.

I have recently increased the number of review lessons, and have included a solution to the new sample problem in lesson E.1.5.  I’ve also added alternate solutions to questions 14 and 21 of Practice Exam #2.
