Review quote

" 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
