STUDY MANUAL:

ASM’s Exam MLC manual offers comprehensive coverage of the syllabus for SOA Exam MLC. In its 70 lessons, the following topics are reviewed:



  • Survival distributions and life tables

  • Insurances

  • Annuities

  • Premiums

  • Reserves

  • Markov chain models

  • Models for multiple decrements

  • Models for multiple lives

  • Pension mathematics

  • Interest rate risk

  • Profit tests

  • Universal life


The 15th edition Fifth Printing of the manual has over 1800 pages and over 1600 end-of-lesson exercises, including over 700 original and 1000 old exam questions, plus over 320 examples and 90 in-lesson exercises. In addition to these exercises, there are thirteen practice exams, all having 20 multiple choice and 6-7 written answer questions, just like the real exam. An appendix has a cross reference to help you track down lessons corresponding to the SOA 318 sample questions and questions from released exams 2000 and later, and there is an index. Many students have found this manual adequate by itself for exam preparation, but the textbook for the exam is referenced in each lesson if you wish to use it.


New for Spring 2018:
Includes solutions to relevant Exam MLC - Fall 2017. Incorporates corrections to all known errata.
