About the manual:


ASM’s LTAM manual offers comprehensive coverage of the syllabus for the new SOA Exam LTAM. In its 75 lessons, the following topics are reviewed:



  • Survival models

  • Insurances

  • Annuities

  • Premiums

  • Reserves

  • Markov chains

  • Multiple decrement models

  • Multiple life models

  • Estimating mortality rates and transition intensities

  • Pensions

  • Profit tests



The 2nd edition of the manual has over 1800 pages and over 1600 end-of-lesson exercises, including over 780 original and 1040 old exam questions, plus over 350 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 322 sample questions and questions from released exams 2000 and later, and there is an index. Many students have found these manuals adequate by themselves for exam preparation, but the textbook for the exam is referenced in each lesson if you wish to use it. 


Printed manual duplex printed on three-hole punch paper. Pages shrink wrapped together into a bundle.
