Hi Mark, it's okay you are polite (and understanding). I had not planned on fixing (filling) the T6.Stulz Credit Risk before the exam, so I'd rather you not expect it. (sorry). However, as we'll soon have the T9.Current (T8 Invest have been published) notes ready, my next notes priority is to fill the gaps, so maybe I can move this reading to the top of the revised notes stack (it's one that I well-prepared to improve quickly), so I'll post back here with an update on that this week (i.e., to let you know if i can, after all, get that "fix" in before May), but maybe best to assume not ... because the next month is going to extra-stressful as similar requests come in. Thanks for your tone, for sure!

Hi Daivd/Suzanne,

Hi David/ Suzanne,

I undertstand that there are quite a few changes in the FRM AIMs and hence you are constrained by time. I rely on BT videos(like many others I suppose) to get an initial undertsanding of topic beacuse everything is explained very clearly / precisely and then reinforce it by reading the BT/schweser notes. Hence some videos not available early is kind of disheartening news but I do understand the practical difficulties.

The next best thing is to map the 2012 videos (for all topics where video is not available currently) to relevant FRM chapters. How does that sound?. Is that feasible considering your time constraints?.

Regards

Prajwala - We have a new credit risk publishing shortly; i.e., we just concluded the last question for a new Malz chapter http://www.bionicturtle.com/forum/t...ads-and-spread-01-dvcs-malz-section-7-1.6922/

We publish a new PDF ~ every 2 weeks, if not sooner, so it's really not convenient to constantly negotiate specific delivery times with each customer, I hope you understand. If you want to know what's next to publish, the hint is http://www.bionicturtle.com/forum/threads/2013-frm-calendar.6642/page-5
i.e., next will be another credit risk (P2) and Tuckman Chapter 5 per http://www.bionicturtle.com/forum/t...k-and-valuation-model-book-4.6906/#post-23801
.... in the new site, we are working on a more transparent display of the PQ status

@Subin: Yes, I understand and regret the transition difficulty. But Suzanne Evans has basically already generally mapped the 2012 videos. We have more videos coming soon, before the exam, of course. I do not personally have time for additional ad hoc projects, sorry, we are creating content right up to the May exam,
Suzanne Evans can you help further with this question, please?

subin_somaraj,

Yes, I have remapped the videos. I would recommend that you use the study planner: http://www.bionicturtle.com/my-account/study-planner

When you open up a video link there will be an explanation as far as what is relevant and what is not (if there is something that is not.)

We are working on re-recording these videos to not include any dates which will allow us to have content ready as soon as the curriculum is released.

Thanks,
Suzanne

just 2 weeks to exam and I am naturally anxious about part2 new AIMS videos, practice question pdfs, current issue notes not available yet, so I am sort of compelled to ask again (really sorry for that) - by when would these course materials be made available?

asocialnot,

I should be able to get Reading #67 (Banque de France Financial Stability Review: Caruana & Avdjiev, Sovereign Creditworthiness and Financial Stability: An International Perspective) up tomorrow.

Thanks,
Suzanne

Hi Guys- in P1 Valuation and risk models there is chapter 2: Quantifying Volatility in VaR Models in Allen’s book from 2013 FRM study guide. Is there a video soon going to be added for this ? thanks

Hi David and Suzanne,

I would like to know if you are still planning to get more current issue readings up the coming days, and if so, which ones. All current issue articles are freely available on the Garp website, so I can start reading those, but since this will take a lot more time than reading your summaries I want to be sure to only read the original articles for which you will not be able to get the summaries before the exam.

Regards,
Geeske

Hi Geeske - I plan to have the rest of T9 done by this weekend/EOD Sunday (I will have to curtail some forum support, when it's most needed but oh well ....), thanks

I have just downloaded recently published practice questions for P1.T4. I have having trouble viewing them on iPad and not able to see entire content.

Is anybody facing same issue ? Could it be due to new format ?

mali_shailesh,

You won't be able to view it on the standard ipad viewer. Evidently they don't accept embedded text. Please download the adobe reader and/or foxit reader on your ipad and view the pdf documents from one of those readers. I have the adobe reader app on my iphone and ipad and have tested both to confirm that you can view all of the content via those readers.

Please let me know should you need further assistance.

Thanks,
Suzanne

mali_shailesh will you confirm that you can (eventually) read the notes with adobe/foxit/other reader? we are re-restyling these documents, and we think the new, proposed format is much more attractive, but of course we need it to be user-friendly/compatible with mobile devices?

I can confirm it now works after downloading the Adobe Reader app.

Hi David/Suzanne,

I dont know if I am positing this query in the right section but I was wondering if and when the sample exam/mock exams for P1 (May 2013) are going to posted?

Thanks

Hi Kamma - We already have two P1 mocks in the Study Planner @ http://www.bionicturtle.com/my-account/study-planner/P50
... although we developed them last year, they are 100% relevant (those mocks triangulate on the stable FRM exam base)
... we will deploy +2 more P1 later in the year, but not before the May exam next week (no way no way, we have several specific PQ documents we are updating, looks like we have 8 in the queue in the next few days, but no mocks). Thanks,
