Probability Theory Video Course

Course page: Exam 1/P: Probability

Hi everyone! I created a video course teaching probability theory mainly for students looking to pass Exam P. This is the probability actuarial exam needed to earn the ASA and ACAS designations. If you’re considering the actuarial profession and taking this exam or just want to learn probability theory efficiently with video lessons, please take a look at my free sample videos and see what you think.

Course Contents
• Formula sheets (no purchase necessary)
• 6-month access to stream video lessons covering the syllabus with video solutions to many original practice problems

Why did I create this?

When I was taking the preliminary exams, I used many video courses along the way. None of them met all of my expectations so I set out to make one that would. This is it and I hope those who use it feel the same way.

The material on Exam 1/P is arguably the most important to master both for the other preliminary exams and to be a competent actuary. This is only amplified with upcoming curriculum changes. It’s crucial to choose the best resources to learn from.

What makes these videos better?

Accurate: There’s nothing more frustrating than having to catch an instructor’s mistakes when you’re trying to learn something for the first time! These lessons were carefully constructed and peer reviewed to ensure accuracy and eliminate typos.

Concise: You’re busy. That’s why videos are appealing. You don’t want long winded improvised explanations. These lessons and problem videos are packed with valuable information and lack redundancy to maximize your efficiency. Every minute of every video has a purpose: to teach you something new and useful. I don’t waste your time.

Results are supported: You’ll truly understand and believe the results because I substantiate them. I’ve spent years determining the most efficient and convincing way to support each result without any loss of precision. The benefits to this approach are numerous and include:

1. Saving time studying - you don’t need to work as many practice problems when you understand the concepts better because you’re not solely depending on familiarity to get the right answers on exam day.

2. Greater confidence - there’s no reason to second guess yourself when you can reason out the results you’re using. Being calm and confident on exams translates to better scores. You’re also more likely to see applications of these concepts to your work as an actuary.

3. Greater retention - when things make sense, they stick with you and that’s important when you take other exams or need them at work.

Multiple solutions to practice problems: I will often provide 2 or even 3 different solutions to practice problems. This increases your confidence in using approaches that are less natural to you. This can save you time if one approach is quicker or reduce your chance of making a mistake if you have time to use multiple approaches on the same problem.

Thank you for your time and good luck with your studies!
