Try to read over all the study material once and Questions, Questions, Questions!!!
For part 2 - I started doing questions regardless of where I was with the study material one month prior to the exam. The month before the exam is not the time to get lazy / sloppy (which I unfortunately did)...
Barely passed but I'll take it. I took 2 bathroom breaks, 1 water break and thought I was going to pass out in the 2nd hour.
Part 1 study: 3 Hours - May 2016 exam (Passed 1st Attempt - using some Schweser notes)
Part 2 Study: 200 hours - Nov 2017 exam (Passed 1st Attempt - using bionic turtle...
I am confused as to what the correct formula for ARAROC? In the formula sheet ARAROC is given as (RAROC - RF) / Beta where as in the example questions / answers I see ARAROC = RAROC - B(Rm-Rf)

Hello, Anyone have any ideas of what the expected cut off score to pass the part 2 exam can be? A range would be great. Currently in my practice questions I am getting anywhere between 60% to 70% correct.

HI Nicole, I had a quick question about the focus review videos. Some of the videos are marked as "new" but I see that on the first slide of the video it is from 2012? What is new about them? For example: Risk Management and Investment Management Focus Review. Thanks!

On the left hand graph (the distributions) shouldn't the title read Pr(z<=1.35) = 91.15? The graph on right probably needs...
Thanks Nicole. Is there any link to a sample focus review video? Typically, how long is each focus video for each topic? For example for Part 2 topic 5 - Market Risk - I see two videos. What is the total video time?
