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 C, Exam MFE, CAS MAS-1.

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

the Actuarial Bookstore


or Actex / Mad River Books.


“Mahler’s Guide to Regression,” Free. Last updated in 2006.

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,
