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 valuation and risk models: value at risk (VaR), binomial, BSM, Greeks, Tuckman's bonds, bond sensitivities, stress testing, credit ratings, expected/unexpected loss, OpRisk intro
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.
I want to appear in May 2021 for FRM part 1, can any one update me about the syllabus, how to go ahead, and is 6 months enough to clear the exam. also I have 10+ years of experience in financial industry (wealth management), does it help, and also, will it considered under professional experience which is required to get the charter/certification of FRM? please advice.

Hi David. I have a question. May sound silly, but I want some clarity. Risk Free Value = Risky Value + CVA. As the name indicates, Risk Free value is for assuming Zero risk. Not sure how can it have a risky component. Can you please advice? Thanks.
