Free stuff as I shut down

27 December 2021

After over 32 years helping a couple of thousand candidates prepare for actuarial exams, and at the age of 81, I’m now fully retiring from the actuarial education business, having stopped teaching my face-to-face exam-prep short courses (“seminars”), and having shut down my website…

In appreciation for all the pleasure and rewards I’ve received from actuarial learners, I’m making available for free all my pdf-file Seminar Excerpts (5 to 12 pages of explanation on each key topic) for both the current LTAM and STAM exams; these should continue to be useful for the coming exams FAM, ALTAM, and ASTAM.

Here is the URL for downloading my LTAM Seminar Excerpts from my Dropbox:

Best wishes to all aspiring to become credentialed actuaries!

Thanks for all you’ve done to help prepare students! Enjoy your retirement.

This feels like a modest underestimate. I know there are very many candidates who appreciate your help in learning these concepts and passing actuarial exams over the years.

Depressing to realize you started teaching around the time I stopped sitting for exams

Thanks for your volunteerism
