Spring 2021 Sitting Status

December 16th, 2020

Note from the TIA forum (https://www.theinfiniteactuary.com/mb/viewtopic.php?f=712&t=64338)
I’ll post further updates directly to this thread in the forum

“I will be using this thread to post general status updates and other admin related details about the Spring 2021 material.

Note that the website currently includes material for the current (2020 sitting). Since candidates will be taking the exam up until 12/31/20, I will keep this material up for the remainder of the year.

The CAS recently published the 2021 syllabus, and there were many changes. I am in the process of incorporating these, and expect to begin releasing the updated material (manuals and videos) early January.

In the meantime, it would be very helpful to get an early start, due to the large volume of material in this exam. Since the Odomirok text (which makes up a large portion of the exam) was updated, I’d recommend holding off on using the manuals/ videos until they have been updated. But there is more than enough source material to get through in the meantime to keep you busy.”

Plans for move to CBT

July 7th, 2020

Hopefully you have already seen the CAS announcement about the move to CBT: https://www.casact.org/press/index.cfm?fa=viewArticle&articleID=4753

I plan on converting select historical exams, as well as my sample exams to this format. I will post status updates to the TIA forum.

I will release more guidance once the CAS releases more details (including the sample questions which are due some time in the Summer)

Note: I posted updated versions of the combined manual, as well as the manuals of several sections. The only changes were to fix the errata (which are published to the Errata spreadsheet in the Intro section of the website).

Hi All,
Hope the study is going well during these last few weeks. You should be aiming to spend the majority of the remaining time focusing on memorizing as well as working problems.

I have uploaded the following to the Additional Material section of the website:
>3 sample exams
>Combined CAS exams that list the questions from historical exams that are still relevant to the current syllabus (with solutions updated to reflect the updated syllabus where applicable)

Don’t hesitate to post any questions to the TIA forum.

Odomirok 26: Discounted Reserves section

August 25th, 2019

My manual had left out Odomirok’s discussion of discounted reserves (this topic previously also appeared on another paper that was removed from the syllabus this sitting).
I have amended the manual to include a summary of Odomirok’s coverage of the topic.

See the Errata for more details
