Alert: Syllabus Changes
There were changes from the Spring 2017 GHS exam syllabus for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018. View a list of the changes on this Excel file. Download a customizable study schedule here. Specialty materials are available now. Any updates to the material (i.e. due to syllabus changes) will continue to be made, and will be indicated in the updates section of your Coaching Actuaries dashboard when they occur.

The Group and Health Specialty exam is challenging and rewarding. The exams cover many aspects of healthcare including aspects of long duration health contracts, assessing and controlling for risk of health contracts, actuarial appraisals, and risk adjustment. Colin Condie, FSA, MBA, MAAA has helped prepare hundreds of actuarial students to pass Group & Health exams since 2007. His student's success has been a result of Colin's excellent content, teaching and, of course, student's diligent efforts executing his plan. To prepare students even more effectively, Colin decided a team approach provides the best exam prep for difficult exams. So, Colin has joined the Coaching Actuaries team to raise Group & Health prep to an even higher level.
