Updating Material for 2019

November 30th, 2018

I’m currently updating the material for the 2019 sitting.

It’s easier for me to upload once everything is completed. On the other hand, if you are studying now, you may want to have access to the material as it’s updated.
Therefore, I’ve labeled all the 2018 material, with “2018″ in the name of the section; and will post new material as it’s ready.

In addition, there will be a log of changes made from the 2018 version of the material - changes to manuals, review notes, and video lessons. This is under Other Info/Study Tools/2019 - Updates to TIA Material
This will be updated as things are changed.

Everything should be up by January 1; except maybe the new paper - Taylor - which will be up by January 15.
Updated Practice exams will be posted later.


Syllabus is Up!

November 27th, 2018

The CAS posted the 2019 Exam 7 Syllabus.

The only change is an addition of a new paper - Taylor - “Stochastic Loss Reserving using Generalized Linear Models”.
A knowledge statement was added, and a learning objective was changed.
No change to weights this year.

A summary of the changes can be found in Other Info / Books -> Study Tools


Welcome to 2019 Exam 7 Review

November 4th, 2018

Welcome to those of you who are accessing the material early.

Over the next 2 months I’ll be updating the manuals. The main changes this year are:

  • Add Taylor paper
  • Add Solutions for 2018 exam
  • Update practice exams to include Integrative Questions
  • Update material where new explanations are useful
  • Changes from the 2018 manual will be documented clearly

If you have any questions, please post them in the forum. I will check there regularly.
