    Hi all,

    I will be taking FRM part 1 and part 2 in Nov. I saw online that the difference b/w Tier 2 and Tier 3 are the spreadsheets. I wanted to ask past Tier 3 users if the spreadsheets are worthwhile. I was looking for a sample online, but was unable to find one.

    Also, in your experience, how much value-added are the videos? As a benchmark, I have used Schweser videos in the past; they were helpful, but not amazing.

    Best regards,

    James

    Hi James,

    Compared to Schweser's videos, BT videos are better (IMHO), given that you give them time to register, i.e. stop, repeat and repeat again if you have to. Write questions, discuss on the forums, and combine them simultaneously with some question solving and you'll get the best results.
    I used only some of the spreadsheets, when referred to in the videos I watched. They were good and useful. But, whatever the tier of product, I'd go for the one that has the practice questions. That is the best of BT's products, aside of being irreplaceable by other PQs from competitors.

    Good luck.

    BT's videos are definitely great, and I would say that the spreadsheets can really help you understand concepts that might seem abstract, as wel as allow you to learn from observing the behavior, first hand, when you plug-in different parameter values and so forth.
