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!
These forums (below) are for PAID BT CUSTOMERS ONLY. Each fresh, original practice question is posted here first and becomes a future reference for (i) follow-up questions, (ii) related comments, or (iii) proposed corrections if you have a disagreement or perceive a potential error or typo

Practice questions for investment management and risk management. Note: This was previously Topic 8 prior to 2020. This is the reason that many of the threads within this forum will be listed under T8 instead of T9.
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.
Could you please help me to understand how did you extract the spot rates in the exemple of

1.what is different between Regulatory CVA and CVA under accounting and pricing?
I found some literatures that define CVA under accounting as, capital that cover expected losses due to CVA volatility while some say, is the cost of credit risk? which is which?
2. The CVA under Basel III, is being replaced by FRTB-CVA or being complemented?
I would like to thank you for this platform:) I am 19 years old, and in my 2nd year in college. I took financial accounting and corporate finance, and am a math major (I have done calc 3). Is it common for students like me to take the FRM? Cause I love this stuff (I spend upwards of 8 hours daily working through the material) but I'm so, so overwhelmed.... I plan to take the Oct/Nov exams. Any advice?
