Books helpful for FRM

Hi Joyce,

Just go to Google and type Jon Gregory 'Counterparty Risk' - you will find the pdf for 450 pages. You can download and print it. You will also find the spreadsheet link referenced inside the book.

Thanks!

Hi,

Just signed up for Part I and trying to figure out if there is any difference between purchasing the books separately for each of the BT notes vs the FRM "package" for $250? Is the FRM package merely a package of all those books? Just want to be in sync with the FRM program as well as the BT notes if I want to dig into a specific topic...

Thanks,
Julien

Hi all,
As i went through David Noted on market risk section of part II,i found that mainly three topics rules the roost,
1) Tuckman discusses Term structure of interest rates its theory,valuation etc interest rate models as Vasicek,ho lee and ICR etc.
2) Dowd discusses Var methods both peramatric and non parametric approaches.
3) Fabbozzi discusses MBS valuation,mortgage markets and a lot about MBS.
Thanks

Thanks.

Hi Julien,

I am not sure that I understand your question.....As far as the FRM Books go, GARP sells them as a package. And as far as BT goes, it also sells its study material et al as a package.

I have bought both the GARP FRM I package and the BT FRM I package. You can go to the Home page of BT and choose whatever package is good for you. I have chosen the one for a Practitioner.

Hope this helps!
Thanks

Dear @Basti,

I was originally scheduled to sit for the November 2014 FRM Part I Exam. I am now planning to sit for it in November 2015. From one year to the other, the changes in the readings are phenomenal (except for the Quantitative section). I would advise you to buy the GARP 2105 FRM Books.

Hope that helps!
Thanks
Jayanthi
