2018 Syllabus Changes

June 28th, 2018

The SOA has made changes to all of their preliminary effective for the later sittings in 2018. The Exam P syllabus has changed the least, with one new topic being added starting with the September 2018 sitting. This new topic is probability generating functions, and is now covered in a new lesson B.2.6. If you are taking the exam in July of 2018, you can skip this (and likewise skip the problems in the problem system labeled as not being on the July 2018 syllabus). If you are taking the exam in September, 2018 or later and have completed Chapter B.2., you should go back and watch this lesson at some point. It is not urgent to do so, as it is independent of all of the later material and will not be a heavily tested topic.
