I occasionally used the Risk Manager Handbook as a reference. Also, I found the Basel II readings in Schweser left out a lot after I went through the original document over the holidays. Why Take the Exam? No thanks, I don’t want to increase my probability of passing. The hand book is huge its hard to go through the entire material but I felt some of the FRM questions are entirely based on the FRM hand book examples that were used for explaining the concepts.

Maybe its because I have a more quant background math undergraduate degree and its one of my stronger areas on the CFA. I cant go on readingg. BTW, used Schweser only.

I must say the FRM exam was a difficult exam- very tricky questions plus very overwhelming coverage. Answering some of the FRM gzrp questions need in-depth knowledge on concepts hence using Schweser material is not a good idea. I’d recommend that you read the following links: I felt like the BT videos took their time and really covered the concepts well. If I were to do it over again….

The most important thing is that you are maetrial to do the practice questions. I used both bionic turtle and schweser. It has been stated many times in our forum that without the detailed forum discussions, it would have been difficult to pass the Magerial exam.

Toughest to easiest ranking. In that situation getting the Kaplan notes would NOT help, since they will not give you the detail you probably need and are full of errors. I did very little studying, knowing many overlap with CFA I passed all 3 levels.

Some of the readings are hundreds of pages long, and they contain a great deal of content that can be difficult to retain. Stay connected We’ll keep you informed on new forum posts, relevant blog articles, and everything you’ll need to prepare for your exam.

SchweserSchweser and Schweser for me as well. Suzanne Evans Administrator Feb 14, BT is such a bargain!!!! Be prepared with Kaplan Schweser. Thus, if you watch the BT videos, read the notes, and then do the practice questions and are able to answer them you’re in a good position. I found the studying and exam questions on the FRM to be pretty straightforward, with the exception of a scant few questions on the exam.

We will find this out soon! I think I spent at most 50 hours studying. Schweser all the way: This was my combination and I am glad to say I passed both parts in the last Nov exam.

The CFA exam will omit major parts of its ciricculum because there is so much material to study. Schweser videos are not worth the money as they are very superficial, but the Final Review Guidebook served as a good starting point for retention exercises.


Alchemist Jan 6th, 5: If you do have more time would recommend a revision of schweser!! Schweser reading texts are great but the practice questions are not any where near the difficulty of the real exams but Bionic questions are about par with the difficulty of the real exams this observation is common among a good number of FRM candidates.

I hope this helps! Core readings for quant helped me to get 1st quartile in quant Read Hull Chapters since 20 odd chapters are from Hull text thru out the FRM Curriculam Skimmed through Schweser Studied Handbook and diligently solved all the Handbook questions except credit risk and Investment management I think I was better off studying Hull which helped me get 1st quartile in market risk and 2nd quartile in Risk models schweser is horrible for ops risk and credit risk. I put most concentration on Credit Risk and OpRisk, while studying very little case studies.
