    Hello @Hassan2016. Please see the private message that I responded to. We do not provide one-on-one support in private messages or on profile pages like this. All of our support is provided in our public forum so it can also help other members. Thank you.
    Hi David - in the AR(1) model Xt+1 = a + bXt + et+1 what is a? the intercept? why is a/1-b equal to the LRM?
    Hi, I am surprised there is no BSM in Part 3 of FRM 1 (at least not in the videos and the first 3 option Hull chapters). Should we know this for the exam? Thanks in advance.
    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?

    Hello I will answer this because David is very busy answering content questions in the forum. Our study planner is organized according to the GARP syllabus, not the GARP books. If you are referring to chapters in the GARP books, that is not how our study planner is laid out. It is organized by Part, Topic and Reading. You will find the individual materials under each Reading in the study planner.
    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.

    The study planner is extremely organized (not scrambled), as it follows the exact GARP syllabus (NOT the GARP books). Please email me or send a private forum message if you have more questions about how our website is organized. Posting on our profiles in the forum is not the best way to ask questions. Thank you.

    Hi David, I am a big admirer of BT and the research that you do in finance. I was calculating YTM using XIRR in excel for amortizing bonds and the XIRR somehow results in a YTM > coupon although the bond is purchased at par. Should YTM calculations consider acc. int. as part of the initial purchase?

    Also, Are there any implications on YTM for bonds with odd coupons e.g. short first coupon periods and should the YIELD or XIRR function in excel be used?

    Thanks in advance. Graeme Ayin, CFA
    Hi David,

    Just need some guidance here. I worked for a insurance company for 6 months as a Operations analyst and then moved to the U.S. My first job in the U.S was in the retail side of a Bank and I did that for 1 year. Now I'm in the corporate role as a Risk Analyst since last 6 months. Do you think this experience would suffice according to GARP's standards?

    Hi garima, Yes, I do believe it would based on what you have written. As you know, it does need to be two full years, but your Risk Analyst of course is spot on and before that your industry participation (ie, job in insurance/banking) generally helps to signify affirmative participation. I hope that helps,
    Hi Nicole/David,

    just a question about part 2 section "Current Issues In Financial Markets".

    Will you publish the quizzes also for this section ? In case they are very useful, at least in my opinion.

    Tks in advance

    Hi fabio, we just received the draft 2018 syllabus and, again, the entire set of Current Issues was changed (I don't like when GARP does this). Ergo, we will NOT be writing further questions for 2017 Current Issues. We will write PQs for 2018 Current Issues, like we did for 2017, but I don't expect we will additionally add an interactive quiz. thanks,

    I am doing a thesis on Merton Distance to default (DD) Model for predicting bank's distance to default. In merton DD model we need values of six variables out of which 3 are known.
    Could you please guide me how to calculate 1-Market Value of assets 2-Volatility of assets and 3-Expected return on Assets in case of banks, because without these values d1 and d2 can’t be calculated.
