  • VEE: Regression and Time Series

    I'm considering taking VEE classes. A question is: can I take regression class and time series class at the same time? I heard regression is a prerequisite by time series but I'm not sure how true it is.

    i'm taking an online time series course right now, and i took a regression course over 5 yrs ago... trust me, i totally do not remember anything from that regression course!! so far in the time series class, i'm finding that i need to look at some probability stuff again (mean, variance, covariance, etc). maybe that stuff was also covered in regression, but i don't remember. i think you could take them both at the same time with no problems...

      I did the ACTEX online course, which covers both regression and time series. It's a quick way to fulfill the requirement, although the time series coverage is pretty thin.

        Hi Binky -
        I'm in similar situation ... except I took regression over 10 years ago ... sheesh!

        What time series course are you taking -- NEAS, Actex? How do you like it?

        Thanks!

          i took the one by actex, but apparently online is not for me. i didn't get a b- so that was a waste... i'm one of those students that would raise their hand all the time and stay after class and go the teacher's office hrs... so i was emailing the teacher non-stop and most of the time couldn't get thru homework because she wouldn't get back to me soon enough for us to go back and forth. plus, i had so much going on in my personal life, i couldn't devote enough time to it anyways... i don't know what i'm gonna do next time. my co-workers have taken some classes thru neas and said it was great, so maybe i'll try them...

                I was in samiliar situation when I was preparing for my Series 7 exam. I used this Series 7 Preparation App to refresh in mind my knowledge. The program has helped me and I passed the test successfully in the end.

                  Hi SweetSugar -
                  So you passed the Series 7 and you're now an actuary? Do you mind if I ask how that switch came about? I'm also a career changer -- former computer programmer. How far are you in your actuarial career, how do you like it?

                    How hard are these 2 classes? How would you compare their difficulty to the Probability course? (the one for Exam P)

                    Which 1 of the 2 classes is harder?
