2013 Exam included. See Introduction section
I have added 2 new items to the COPLFR section:
-”Additional Material”, which mentions some points that were omitted from the manual
-2010 Q35 (question and solution), which was also omitted
Note from the TIA forum:
The TIA website now allows you to enter star ratings for each video. I would appreciate if you could rate the videos. This way, I can tell which areas people are still struggling with, and create more resources if possible. Thanks!
2 Sample Exams are now available in the Additional Material section
From the TIA Forum:
I posted the 2013 CAS exam questions & solutions file to Additional Material.
Note that the footer on each page mentions which topic the question is from… so you can either move each page to the appropriate manual, or keep the entire exam grouped together
I have segmented the Study Manuals into 3 types of files:
-CAS Exam Questions Only
-Sample Questions Only
They can be found in the Additional Material section.
Note that these files will NOT be updated to correct any errata, so if you decide to use these files instead of the individual manuals, MAKE SURE YOU MONITOR THE LIST OF ERRATA. Only the individual manual files are kept up to date to fix errata.
From the TIA forum:
“Just a quick note about the Sample Questions. I would recommend keeping the sample questions until you have mastered all of the material (ie understand the various concepts, and attempted the CAS exam questions).
Some of the sample questions are tricky, and also I tried to test areas that haven’t historically be tested. So leaving these for the end will give you a better indication of how ready you are for the exam.”
Since I assume everyone has printed out the manuals by now, from now on, I will only be updating the list of errata to the errata spreadsheet.
If you would like me to update the manuals as well, send me an email.
I uploaded an Accounting Overview file to the Introduction section of the website. This is an extremely high level overview of the accounting papers. It really is meant to be used as a checklist when you are doing a 2nd pass of the material…. it essentially lists what you should make sure that you know at MINIMUM.
On an unrelated note, I will be at the TIA live seminar in Chicago the week of 8/26. Responses to the TIA forum may be delayed.
Also, I uploaded a spreadsheet with the exhibits from the Blanchard Reinsurance manual.
