Hi Nicole,
thank you for the updates. Does that mean that the study notes for Part I from the previous platform (older BT website) that are flagged as new are only with minor changes (as opposed to the older version from 2015)?

Hello @Basti

When we upgraded to the new website, all of the materials that were transferred over were flagged as "New" automatically, but this does not mean that they were updated. When I update any materials for 2016, they will be listed in this thread. We have not yet published any new or updated study notes, so any notes that you see in the study planner now are from 2015. As soon as I update them, I will add them to this list.

Thank you,

Nicole

Hello @ELCH57 ,

Please see our announcement regarding our publishing process here in the forum: https://www.bionicturtle.com/forum/threads/important-please-read-publishing-process-for-2016.9172/. Also, as you will see in the comments of that forum post, we do not guarantee that all 84 readings in the GARP curriculum will have a full set of materials before the May exam. We prepare and publish materials according to their perceived priority, and we focus on the QUALITY of our materials rather than quantity. We are still working very hard to prepare materials and will publish them as soon as possible. In the meantime, there is an abundance of relevant materials that are already published in the Study Planner while you wait for the newer materials. Thank you for your patience.

Thank you,

Nicole

Hello @burcudas

Once you have purchased one of our study packages (see packages HERE), you can access all of your purchased materials in the Study Planner. This thread is only a list of some updates that have been made to the materials for 2016. If you visit the study planner before purchasing, you can see which materials have been published, along with samples of those materials.

Thank you,

Nicole

Nicole, David,
Are you going to publish the study notes for Jon Gregory's Central Counterparties: Mandatory Clearing and Bilateral Margin Requirements for OTC Derivatives in the coming days or is that not planned? Thank you.

David, when do you expect to publish the Gregory study notes?
Hello @ELCH57

David is working hard to finish the Gregory notes in addition to spending many hours in the forum answering questions. We will get them published as soon as we possibly can. :)

Thank you,

Nicole
