    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is required for you to become an actuary and also is required for you stat majors. Dr.Ni is a tough grader but knows what he is talking about. Make sure to come to class, pay attention, and take notes if you want to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    Learned the material that I necessary to pass Exam FM. He gives links to study guides and practice FM Exams that are very useful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If it's not required then I would recommend you don't take it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's required for Actuarial Science major. Although it's tough and confusing at first, the course material is the foundation for many Actuarial and financial applications.

    Course highlights:

    Since taking Theory of Interest, I have spotted things I learned in the course in many places in the real world that I otherwise would have overlooked. As I said above, it's challenging to master, but there is a logic to everything so it's much more than simply memorizing formulas.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start your homework early! It can be a real brain drain so give yourself enough time to take breaks. Dr Ni likes to give test questions from the FM Exam, so it would be wise to use an FM study guide in addition to the course textbook. Both the text and the lectures are hard to understand, so you'll need to seek out online tutorials on youtube to really get a handle on things.
