    Hello David,
    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?
    Hello David, can you help me solve this question?

    Consider a ten-year mortgage loan secured by residential real estate, with an EAD of Euro 250,000 and an estimated LGD of 10 %. Supposing the customer’s PD is 2%, compute the capital requirement under the Basel II IRB approach, the standardized approach of Basel II, and under Basel I? Please explain step by step
    Hi David, Kindly advise how many observations need to calculate daily VaR?

    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 found 1 error question in 2018 FRM Part 1 exam conducted on Saturday..Please let me know when i can notify you for the same
    Hi David, i found my name on admission ticket are all lower while the name on the passport is capitalised. i am wondering whether it matters. and my garp id is 662460. i am looking forward to get response. thanks in advance.
    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?
    Graeme Ayin
    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
