Very useful overview Nicole, thanks. Helps a lot in keeping track with things and structuring the work to do. What is also very useful though is that I remember when i was studying for part one you also had an overview of expected updates still to follow. Is this still available?

I'm particularly thinking about study notes for reading 39 (meisner) and potentially also the current reading on clearinghouse overconfidence (because that one is long and more complex - the others are shorter and more straightforward and i wouldn't even mind not having notes for those). On quick first sight, except for these two, most topics seems to have been covered / updated with study notes / question sets for P2.

Would you be able to indicate if these two materials (and any other P2 materials for that matter) will still follow and what would be the approx timing?

Thanks for any clarifications!

Hello @Jo_

We discontinued the publishing calendar this year, as it caused constant update emails and questions on the forum if materials weren't published on the tentative publish date. Responding to constant status update questions causes us to lose valuable time preparing the materials. Although we are no longer giving specific dates, which really cannot be committed to anyway, we assure you that we are going to continue updating the materials up until the November exam to make sure that our customers have as many quality materials as possible to study from. Thank you for using Bionic Turtle, and we look forward to assisting you with your preparation for the November exam! :)

Hi @David Harper CFA FRM CIPM & @Nicole Manley

It is already August and there quite some topics for which either there are no videos or study notes or excel spreadsheets or practice questions. I hope that the same will be released atleast a month before the exams to give us adequate time to go through the materials. Can you please let me know by when do I expect this materials, specifically videos and excel spread sheets (this is what I had additional subscribed for by paying additional premium).

@rkothari

We are working very hard to get more materials published. While we understand that you are looking for the missing materials, it is difficult for us to work on materials when we have to provide status updates on the materials. It just takes a lot of time away from our preparation. When we publish new materials, you will see a "New" symbol in the study planner and we will also add to the published list in this forum thread. We appreciate your patience, and assure you that we will publish as many new materials as possible before the exam. Please note: There will always be some gaps in the materials, as it would be impossible for us to publish new materials for every single reading in the GARP curriculum. During the second semester of the year, we publish according to perceived priority in order to give you the best FRM materials to study from.

Thank you,

Nicole

Seems entire syllabus for part-2 is more or less released by you guys. Kudos. And the new site must be round the corner.
Hello @amresh
