Hello @ELCH57

We are currently drafting study notes, and we do plan on publishing the notes that you've listed above (although we do try to refrain from guaranteeing that any specific readings will be published). We are working quickly to finish preparing outstanding materials at this time, and appreciate your patience.

Thank you,

Nicole

Hi Nicole,

Would it be possible for you to confirm if you're planning on publishing any updates to the focus review videos? I noticed that they're quite old (2012) so I wanted to confirm before using them for review. I'm not asking for timelines but just want to get a sense of whether I should expect updates.

Thanks

Hi @MBK I don't expect we will update the focus review videos until 2017. We will begin updating other videos shortly but we probably won't update the focus review videos until we have all notes updated for the 2017 syllabus (cc @Nicole Seaman ). Thanks,

Hi David/Nicole,

In the first post, it is mentioned that Global Topic Drill has been updated for Topic 5 as of 09/08/2016. However, I see some questions in there regarding key rates, duration etc. Do these reflect the older P2 syllabus? I just wanted to confirm that while you did mention that there have been updates in the Global Topic Drill, there are still questions in the Drill from the older P2 syllabus which aren't relevant anymore (at least directly) for the latest P2 syllabus, correct?

Hello @MBK

You are correct. We have not updated the Global Topic Drills to completely coincide with the 2016 curriculum so there are going to be questions that reflect the older curriculum. Because we are not going to have time to add new questions to these sets, we decided to publish the older questions since many of them are relevant to this year's exam.

Thank you,

Nicole

Hi @Nicole Seaman is there a link/button that downloads all the study materials at once ? This feature would make us download/save and print materials quickly. Thanks.

Hello @Rohit

No it is not possible to download the entire study planner at once. Please keep in mind that we publish materials throughout the exam period and not all at once. We have found that most of our members go through the study planner and download the readings that they are currently studying and check them off once they have completed them. If you were able to download the entire study planner all at once, you would need to do it many times, as the study planner is constantly updated. Please also note that we create new update threads each year. The current threads for 2017 are here for Part 1 and Part 2. I hope this helps!

Nicole
