My girlfriend (B.B.A) is really interested in Actuarial science. She's looking at self teaching her self. She's good with basic math (Calculus 1 and 2) and stats

What are some of the essential sources she needs to read in order to learn and excel in the field?

And for bedtime reading, "Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk" by Peter L. Bernstein. She'll find out how Lloyds of London started, among many other interesting bits. Highly recommended and only $13 from amazon.

sources:

1) statistics upto ANOVA 2) probability upto Central limit theorem 3) Basic programming and data analysis skills 4) Familiarity with business economics 5) Financial mathematics

This is a verrry basic smattering of things that she needs to read.
