How is Actuarial Mathematics?

The course is a 400 level course but when I look at the description of it, I'm thinking it should be easy. Am I wrong?

Course description: Topics include the economics of insurance, individual risk models for a short term, survival distributions and life tables, life insurance per year, life annuities, and net premiums.

It would totally depend on what school you're taking it at and who the professor is. The best thing to do is to get a copy of the complete syllabus and look carefully at the pace of topics covered, and take a look in the book to see what they are. Look at an old final exam copy if it's available. Then if you're still not sure, ask the professor about how challenging he/she intends to make the course.

That's a good idea, I have the book and will look through it.

And find out who the prof is and go to www.ratemyprofessors.com and look at what other students say about him!

This professor teaches so many courses that it's not even funny and most people hate him. So, ratings relating to the course I'm looking for this proffesor is rare.
