What Our Students Are Saying

The most time-efficient way to learn the material

Rising Fellow has the best actuarial study materials available. These came highly recommended to me and truly lived up to the high praise they received. I used the Rising Fellow Cookbook to study for Exams 7, 8, and 9. These are the most time-efficient way to learn the material and will make sure you are well prepared on exam day!

You truly care about us through the products you develop

I just wanted to say thank you for the materials you offer. I recently passed Exam 8 in the fall and Exam 7 to the spring and I know your cookbooks were absolutely the deciding factor after previous unsuccessful attempts. The steps are clear and concise and often explain information that I found very confusing. Plus several questions provide a new way of asking about the material that I just felt really prepared me for the style of questions the CAS asks. I could really tell that you truly care about us through the products you develop.
