Memorization Required (Compared to Actuarial Duties)

<p>What has currently drawn me to engineering is that most jobs are not memorization-intensive. However, how does the amount of memorization on the job/college studies relate to that of an actuary? Though I do enjoy economics and statistics, I believe that most actuary exams require a great deal of memorization. I am much better at employing concepts than utilizing sheer memorization. </p>

<p>Thanks for any replies.</p>
