The Society of Actuaries provides this information as a convenience to its candidates. None of these services are sponsored or endorsed by the Society. It is not necessary to use any of these services, but many candidates choose to take advantage of them.

Please note that the Examination Committee expects candidates to read the material cited in the Syllabus and to use other material as a complement to the primary sources rather than a substitution for them.
