Last month the CAS and ACTEX Learning hosted a webinar for Student Central members entitled, “How to Pass Your Actuarial Exams: Learn More, Study Less.” The webinar featured Roy Ju, FSA, CERA, MAAA, Mike Jennings, FSA, CERA and Ken Williams FCAS, MAAA, CAS Staff Actuary.

In 2015, Roy Ju broke the world record as the youngest FSA of all time (age 20). After fifteen months of testing these strategies and accelerating his own exam process (passing 2 preliminary exams, a fellowship exam, the FAP modules, and the FSA modules over this period), he partnered with Mike Jennings to share these strategies with all actuarial students. Together they wrote the book, Actuarial Exam Tactics: Learn More, Study Less.

In this webinar, they shared exclusive insights from the book’s three pillars:

  • Effectiveness (how to pass)
  • Efficiency (how to pass in less time)
  • Adherence (how to stick to your study schedule)

Additionally, Ken Williams walked through the CAS credentialing process, outlining the steps to become an Associate and Fellow of the CAS.

All three presenters spent time answering questions that actuarial students had submitted both in advance, and throughout the webinar.
