12/09/20: Manual purchases are disabled for now. Exam 9 Spring 2021 manual will become available for purchase when syllabus and manual changes are finalized. 


  • Wow! What a whirlwind the past few months have been! Wishing healthiness to everyone. Both actuarial societies have committed to (finally) moving to computer-based exams, and I am updating the manuals to maintain consistency with that approach. This is a time-consuming process.

  • Intended Updates for 2021

    • Due to time constraints, for the indefinite future, I will not be offering manuals for the 2x/year exams (SOA exams + CAS Exam 6).

    • Practice exams will be moved to Excel. This is currently in progress for Exam 9, but it is a slow process, so I have no ETA. 11/25/20 -- Practice Exams are complete for Exam 9, as are prior exam questions.

    • Where it makes sense, practice questions will have some integration with Excel (as in the current CAS 6 manual format). This will allow for more interesting questions.
