This manual offers comprehensive coverage of the syllabus for SOA Exam C and CAS Exam 4. In its 64 lessons, the following topics are reviewed:
The manual has about 1500 pages, about 250 examples, 72 in-lesson exercises, and about 1400 end-of-lesson exercises, including both original and old exam questions, many of them taken from pre-2000 exams, which are not easily available, all with worked out solutions. In addition to these exercises, there are 13 full-length (35-question) practice exams. An appendix has a cross reference to help you track down lessons corresponding to published 2000 and later exam questions, and there is an index. Many students have found this manual adequate by itself for exam preparation, but the Klugman textbook and the study notes required for the exam are referenced in each lesson if you wish to use them.
