I have been writing study guides since 1994. I have continued to update and revise my study guides each year, including the many helpful suggestions of past students.


Currently I have study guides for STAM, CAS Exam MAS-1,

Basic Ratemaking (CAS Exam 5), Advanced Ratemaking (CAS Exam 8).


In each case, seminar style slides are sold separately.


I also have practice exams sold separately for: Exam STAM, CAS MAS-1.


My study guides, practice exams, and other products can be purchased from:

the Actuarial Bookstore http://www.actuarialbookstore.com/

or Actex / Mad River Books. http://www.actexmadriver.com/

Dear Prof, I was completely speechless when I got to the 35th question today in less than 2 hours. I had 33 solid answers to all the 35 questions. Mr Bulhmann, Mr Bayes, and Fitting of Loss distributions particularly MLEs was what I encountered. I must say that the SOA uses your style of wording Credibility and Bulhmann problems. I read and did every single problem in your guide within  a month and half. As for your PRACTICE EXAMS, they are TOP NOTCH.

 I am compiling a set of ideas and comments to you as soon as possible. I am buying for GUIDE for Exam MFE next week. Thanks for the INSANE amount of work!!!!  God richly bless you.

 Your happy customer,

I've always used your manuals whenever there was an exam you had material on, and I can say with certainty that your manuals were the most helpful and informative sources that I have used on exams. The effort was obvious given the significant amount of detail in the explanations, combined with original well-written questions that really tested my understanding of the concepts.

Having used other manuals for other exams, I don't think any other manual writers have nearly as many original questions as you do, and even when they put together a problem set, they were not nearly as good as yours. The exam 8 manual really is a great highlight of that, as I struggled conceptually with a lot of the material until I read your explanations and did your problems.
