So, if there are changes to curriculum for May 2018 exams (like Machine learning, et al), would you be providing updated materials if i purchase it now?
My aim is FRM Part 1 in May 2018.
Does your current Part 1 course material (for 2017) cover 100% the study requirements for May 2018?
Or if i buy now, would you be providing me updated materials?

I am in the study planner. I see the breakdown by topic. I do not see notes anywhere.

to be more specific, in watching the very first video of the very first section, it mentions suggested reading. how was it suggested if this is the first video? where is that reading available?

Then what is the suggested reading that is reference in the first video "Instructional Video: Intro to Foundations of Risk"? because he says in the video he will just be doing a helicopter review of the suggested reading, implying that we should have already read something; but doesn't say what or where to access.

@adamglatt the first video is an introduction. See below. Study Notes are after the Question Set, under each reading

@adamglatt where in the video, what are you talking about? I see that I make reference to the "in this brief video, I am not going to review any of the assigned readings ..."

"Assigned readings" is a reference to GARP's FRM assigned readings in the Study Guide (and Learning Objectives), the same readings for which we provide the said Study Notes and Practice Questions.

ok thank you. i just wasn't clear what readings were being referenced, so i thought i was missing something, as this is the very first video.

The intro email seemed clear - all material are in the study planner. It was when I was watching the very first video and there was a reference to suggested readings, I was not clear as to which readings they were, and there are no notes in that intro section. Now I know it is the GARP readings, and nothing on BT. I thank you for taking the time to respond an clear it up.

@David Harper CFA FRM

The welcome email that is sent is very clear on getting started after a customer purchases a study package. As @adamglatt noted above, it clearly directs them to the study planner and states that they can access all of their paid materials there. There are also other links included in that email to help them in getting started. I think this was a one-time misunderstanding because this has never come up before. IMO I don't think we need to change anything. We have the first video clearly marked as an introduction to Foundations of Risk, and as you noted above, you stated that it is a brief intro video and you will not review any assigned readings.

Thanks
Nicole
