Are the Bionic Turtle FRM materials sufficient to pass the exam?
Bionic Turtle provides top quality FRM materials, along with personalized forum support. We try our hardest to update our Study Planner each year in order to reflect the current FRM curriculum. Because each individual person has a different education, background, and experience, it is difficult for us to suggest whether or not you will need other FRM materials in addition to the Bionic Turtle study materials. Many of our subscribers purchase the GARP core books to complement their studies, while some feel that Bionic Turtle’s FRM materials are enough to learn the concepts in order to pass the exam. Our mission is to make sure that our members understand the concepts in-depth so they can use their knowledge on the exam and in the real world.
Our forum is very useful for these types of inquiries. There is a great deal of helpful feedback on the forum from members who have taken the exams already. They discuss what they used for FRM materials, and many have provided their study plan. Here are some examples of threads from our forum that may help you:

What Your Colleagues Are Saying
I took the exam in Sydney and had a similar feeling about the exam being more qualitative (but no less rigorous). However, I felt I was better prepared thanks to the BT's relentless focus on throwing real life examples and methods.
I subscribed to BT for my Part 1 FRM exam and just wanted to say thanks for the depth and breadth of the study materials and practice questions. I found out that I scored in the top quartile of every topic and I absolutely could not have done this without using BT - I spent many, many hours going over the practice questions and answers! I wanted to express my appreciation and gratitude to your team for your hard work in creating these materials. Thanks!
The BT scripts, practice questions, global topic drills and mock exams were a great help in understanding the concepts (which I could already apply on the job!) and where structured in such a manner that the breadth and depth where optimal for exam preparation - clearly the exam would have been a catastrophe without BT!
Passed first time. Happy all the hard work paid off. BT was the right choice. Thanks David and Nicole for your work and commitment.
Passed! 1,4,1,2,1,4! Thank you David and Nicole for your efforts! Thank you BT! Couldn't have done it otherwise. I'm a mechanical engineer who had a career in petroleum services, then I decided to switch career to financial risk management. Passed part 1 from the first time with top quartiles and passed part 2 from the first time as well. All with BT! BT is always the recommendation I give to people aiming at the FRM designation! Thank you again!
Passed Part I and Part II first time - absolutely could not have done it without BT. Like a few others I didn't even both buying the GARP books for Part II and went solely with BT materials. Just read, answered questions, watched videos, read, more questions, and... more questions! All the practice question taking looked to pay off. Thanks again Bionic Turtle for a great curriculum. Keep up the fantastic work!
