I would like to become an Actuary, but I need your advise.
I have just graduated with a Finance & Business Econ Degree. I will be going to a non target for a Masters in Business Analytics. I would like to become a certified actuary, and I need advice.
I have been researching and trying to find out what I need to be successful in the actuary exams… From what I see, knowledge of Micro and Macroeconomics is very helpful, as well as . But where things fall apart is the math. There are different estimates as to the amount of math that I need. Some say I need just up to Calc 3 and maybe Linear Algebra. Some others say that I need to get above calc 3 into the mind bending math, which you'd typically take if you were a math major. I only have Calc 1. I would like to take evening classes and work up to 3 at local community colleges, but it seems like it's too late for me to go over the mind bending stuff, given that I have already graduated. I am assuming that I cant go over Calc 3 with ought enrolling back into a university as an undergrad again.
My point is that I would like to know what amount of calculus that I need to reach in other to have a fighting chance to pass the SOA exams.
Thank You for your help in advance.
