    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The instructor, Di Xu has graduated from University of Waterloo, Canada. She had spent years of doing her research in this field. Although she has a thick Chinese accent, but she is approachable and will definitely help the students when they need help.

    Course highlights:

    This course is focusing on the first part of ExamC, one of the preliminary exam requirement by SOA and CAS. It applies whatever we've learned from ExamP and expand the knowledge from it.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    STAT 462 is the pre-requisite for this course. Thus, try to revise the materials before getting in to this class.
