All lessons now available

January 28th, 2008

The remaining lessons have been finalized: IRC Section 417, IRC Section 420, PBGC topics and Multiemployer plans.

In February, I’ll start recording the solutions for the prior exam problems in each section. I’ll also start updating the practice problems for 2008.

Live versus Online - What’s the Diff?

January 4th, 2008

In general, the idea is that the online seminar experience will be the same as the live seminar.

But there are some differences:

ONLINE SEMINAR

  1. You get access to the actual presentation as soon as it is available on the IA web site. This is done via video files which record the audio and show the seminar overheads as I discuss them (and write notes on them). You don’t actually see me at all.
  2. If something seems unclear after viewing the online seminar, you can repeat the presentation as many times as you like.  And you can email me with any questions.
  3. At the end of January, I mail you a CD with PDF files for everything (seminar overheads, outlines and practice problems) at that date. In January and February, as the online seminar files are created, they are posted to the Infinite Actuary web site. You have to print the files yourself.
  4. As I update the outlines and practice problems, they are posted to the Software Polish web site. Students receive email notifications, and are responsible for printing these files.

 LIVE SEMINAR

  1. You don’t get the actual presentation until the Live seminar is held in April.
  2. If something seems unclear after the seminar, you can email me with any questions.
  3. At the end of January, I mail you a stack of paper (1,000 pages), plus a CD with PDF files for everything (seminar overheads, outlines and practice problems).
  4. As I update the outlines and practice problems, they are posted to the Software Polish web site. Students receive email notifications, and are responsible for printing these files.
