1 TO: Users of the ACTEX Review Semiar o DVD for SOA Eam MLC FROM: Richard L. (Dick) Lodo, FSA Dear Studets, Thak you for purchasig the DVD recordig of the ACTEX Review Semiar for SOA Eam M, Life Cotigecies segmet (MLC). This versio is iteded for the eam offered i May 007 ad thereafter. Please be aware that the DVD semiar does ot deal with the Fiacial Ecoomics segmet (MFE) of Eam M. The purpose of this memo is to provide you with a orietatio to this semiar, which is devoted to a review of life cotigecies plus the related topics of multistate models ad the Pois process. A 6page summary of the topics covered i the semiar is attached to this cover memo. Although the semiar is orgaized idepedetly of ay particular tetbook, the summary of topics shows where each topic is covered i the tetbook Models for Quatifyig Risk (Secod Editio), by Cuigham, Herzog, ad Lodo. I order to be ready to write the MLC eam, you eed to accomplish three stages of preparatio: This first stage is to obtai a uderstadig of all the uderlyig mathematical theory, icludig a mastery of stadardized iteratioal actuarial otatio. This DVD review semiar is desiged to eable you to obtai that uderstadig. The secod stage is to prepare, ad the master, a complete list of all formulas ad relatioships (of which there are may) eeded for the eam. For those who do ot wish to prepare their ow lists, a very complete set of formulas (364 i total) is available from ACTEX i the form of study flash cards. The third stage is to do a large umber of eamtype practice questios, begiig with the edofchapter eercises is the tetbook. I additio, you should purchase oe (or more) of the several eamprep study guides that have bee prepared for that purpose. A relatively small umber of sample problems (34) are worked out for the group i this DVD. A copy of these questios, with detailed lutios, is attached to this cover memo for your referece. Good luck to you o your eam
