BT Materials Sufficient?


New Member

I have a few questions:

a) Is BT materials alone sufficient to take the FRM Part exam? I can't afford to purchase any of the combo of BT, schweser and GARP textbooks?

b) Do we need to know the derivation of any/all the formulas or just understand it conceptually and able to utilize it would be sufficient to take the exam?

Thank you!

I took the full exam and found Schweser Material lacking depth and structure. I felt Schweser material provided a good base, but Schweser allone underprepared me for the exam. I scored around 80% with the Schweser Q-Bank. This gave me a false sense of security. Other then reading the core assigned readings, I don’t know how this could be corrected. Some people report that Bionic Turtle could provide an additional edge................
