Mike Carmody now with Passed Tense
JAM Materials no longer available

Mike Carmody, CFA, FSA, MAAA is known for Just Actuarial Material (JAM) and his sold out seminars for specific Society of Actuaries (SOA) essay exams, including exams on Financial Economics Theory and Engineering. JAM materials have helped thousands of people pass some of the hardest financial exams. Just Actuarial Material was founded in 1998 and continued through 2007, when Mike decided to shift his focus due to changes in the SOA exam structure.

Mike is now pleased to offer study instruction for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Exam through his new company, Passed Tense. Passed Tense has the same high quality, easy-to-understand teaching as the JAM materials combined with the powerful Adapt exam engine created by Coaching Actuaries.
