Has anyone made some kind of rough estimate list of what they test? For example lets say:

Every exam.
every other.
occasional.
rare.
very rare.

did you mean CAS provided ratemaking and reserving textbooks by 'material' or optional study guides and seminars like Mahler and TIA?

So.. I've started practice problems with TIA... having just come off MAS I... why do I feel that Exam 5 is not as hard. That doesnt mean its easy. It just feels MAS I is harder.

Having that said.. I am still in the middle of questions.. so.. maybe the hard part is coming.

I feel that 5 is more intuitive as I have seen most of the stuff in practice before. I also enjoy studying for it way more than MAS-1.

Good point... I think I should re-phrase: exam 5 is just more intuitive bc I see it in practice more too. Not necessarily easier... just more familiar/intuitive.
