My question is whether my limited math knowledge will be a major hinder in passing the FRM exam?

The FRM Handbook seems to assume that the reader understands the math symbols and concepts, because it doesn't explain them. Does the exam require strong math skills, because based upon the Quant Analysis chapter of the FRM Handbook it appears that it does? If so, where do I turn for instruction that will help me to understand the equations? Do I need to go get a calculus textbook and try to learn it real quick, or will the BT webinars get basic enough to help me understand the complex equations? Or is there another source that would be helpful to me in understanding the math equations. Flipping through the FRM Handbook, it appears that the math will only get worse (since I have only made it up to page 7)!

Any advice would be great.
