Actuaries' Survival Guide
This unique book is a guide for students and graduates of mathematics, statistics, economics, finance, and other number-based disciplines contemplating a career in actuarial science.

It presents an overview of career options and details on employment in different industries. It provides a link between theory and practice; helps readers gain the qualitative and quantitative skills and knowledge required to succeed in actuarial exams. It includes insights from over 50 actuaries and actuarial students. It is written by Fred Szabo, who has directed the actuarial co-op program at Concordia University for over ten years.
