I am writing this to express my gratitude to David - who helped me bring down the Goliath name FRM. I chanced upon BT while looking at some forums. Just my seeing some samples I knew that this would fit me. I would say that any single word related to Finance and risk that I understand is due to David and BT- notes, tons of questions, videos and forum. I have no words to express my gratitude to David. It is only because of him. I saw him talking in one of his video and wanted to shake his hands right there. David you are the true beacon to so many risk professionals.

David! Your resource is definitely the best! FRM PART 2 Passed!!! Exam problems are much harder than given in another prep provider's materials! And much trickier than GARP Practice exams! And questions are intricately formulated, even for me (I hail from Moscow) who passed TOEFL with 102 score and have been learning English for my whole life. Without you and Nicole, I could hardly approach this FRM, You are always helpful and look into the crux of the matter, so thanks a lot and continue this way, I will never forget this amazing experience of learning and practicing!

I would just like to share that I passed FRM Part 2 (as well as Part 1) using Bionic Turtle.
(1) First of all, I purchased the Part 1 and 2 professional package. I really appreciated the quick responses I got from Nicole when I emailed asking about BT. I used BT for part 1 and part 2 and I have no GARP reading materials.
(2) I find the notes, spreadsheets and videos very useful (including the chapter review videos. I think the key to passing the exams is active studying (that is answering the questions)).
(3) Very valuable for me also is the forum. I need not ask lots of questions in the forum because most of my questions were already asked in the past. I also learn from following the answers of active members and David to some questions.
In my opinion, BT is did help me prepare for the exams. It is not a perfect replacement for the original material/readings, and will not work for everyone (since every person has a different base knowledge). Again thank you.Lloyd Dagdag, FRM CIAJanuary 18, 2016
I want to thank a lot David and Nicole for your professionalism and for very precise answers to many questions posted here. I used another prep provider on L1, it did the job but with BT it was a completely different experience. The videos and Excel spreadsheet were really helpful for me to have a grasp of the concepts. I wasn't only cramming for an exam but actually I have been learning a lot during the whole journey.S.L., Senior Financial AnalystJanuary 7, 2016
Thank you so much, David and Nicole! I passed FRM part 2 with studying only from Bionic Turtle materials. I would not have done it without you!AlyTiaJanuary 5, 2016
Passed! Big Thanks to David Harper CFA FRM and Nicole Manley for all their help and support. I clearly recall that I was completely stumped when I picked up another prep provider's notes and was not able to grasp anything quite clearly, but David with his simplicity in explaining concepts made it all quite easy. :) Abhinav MisraJanuary 5, 2016
Thanks a lot for the outstanding content that you have created which helped me a great deal with my preparations. Undecided yet on when to appear for Part 2 but I know whom I will be getting in touch with again, once I do.Arun PrakashJanuary 5, 2016

Passed!! David Harper, CFA FRM and Nicole Manley, without you it was nightmare for me. You transformed it into a dream. Looking forward for part 2 also. Thanks a lot!Deepak ChitnisJanuary 4, 2016
Cleared FRM part 1. I am grateful to David for his excellent questions and his desire to help us understand the concepts through detailed explanations in forum and for his patience. And thanks to all in the forum for taking out time to answer my questions. Thanks Nicole and BT.Praveen_IndiaJuly 1, 2015
