This efficient and effective book was written specifically for actuarial students and those who are considering an actuarial career. It includes detailed information on the various actuarial organizations in the United States, Canada and beyond, along with descriptions of many organizations’ education programs. Topics covered include techniques to maximize success on the exams, non-technical skills critical to longer-term success in the profession, and career advice. It is a perfect single-source career development reference for aspiring actuaries.
“Given that you can spend over 300 hours studying for just one actuarial examination, it is well worth an investment of two to three hours to read this fine summary of how to study for and write actuarial exams. Written in an easy style, this book is full of sound suggestions to improve your efficiency on these trying examinations. Not only that, but if you follow the advice given faithfully, it could just make the difference between receiving a six versus a five.”
-Robert L. Brown, Professor Emeritus, University of Waterloo; Past President, Society of Actuaries and International Actuarial Association
