Today's Daily Questions

David writes totally fresh, totally original practice questions every week: a fresh set of three questions on Mon and Wed = 6 new practice questions per week. A few hungry customers like to follow along, so we post them here.

Paid members please note: you do not need to collect practice questions one at a time! After a chapter (or section of related chapters) is finished, Nicole collects them into a single PDF file and uploads to the Study Planner. Most paid members will want to go straight to the study planner (unless you want to discuss/etc in the forum). Thank you!

FRM Archive
Older forums are located (eventually transferred) to the location below. These forums are often LESS RELEVANT to current FRM candidates. However, due to the relative continuity of the FRM's underlying structure--despite its continuous churn--they continue to offer some relevance.

[P1 & P2]Text: Options, Futures & Derivatives, 7th

Assigned in 2010: Estimating volatility & correlation (Ch 21); Chapters 1 - 7, 9 and 10; Binomial (Ch 11), BSM (Ch 13), Greeks (Ch 17), Credit risk (Ch 22), Credit derivatives (Ch 23), Volatility smile (Ch 18), and Exotic options (Ch 24)

2. i am supposed to find review questions after each chapter i finish, i couldn't find that ? is there any depository for all practice questions related to each chapter?
eldakrory wrote on David Harper CFA FRM's profile.
Hello David, i'm a new member and have a couple of Q's as i find the website is pretty scrambled and the experience was below my expectation for the money paid.
1. The chapters' study notes are repeated under different authors (for ex. in Quant. we have chapter 4,5,6 under miller and watson and Diebold) which one in this case we should study from? also for their respective question set.
Hi, pls could admin add my contact to the list on whatsapp for frm part1 exam 2019. +2348035266441
