Review:

"I found this material to be the most helpful thing for anyone contemplating an actuarial profession. The early material motivates and familiarizes a person with the profession in a casual but real way. The middle material gives a person the tools to plan and attack a program to pass the exams. The latter part of the book gives great guidance on job opportunities...Bravo to both the book's concept and realization. - Murray Lieb, New Jersey Institute of Technology "The book is extremely well written. Actuaries need good communication skills and this book provides an excellent example of such skills at work. - Charles Moore, Kansas State University
