    frmquant: Thanks. I do what I can just to make a difference here (getting a job) . I have been using Excel VBA for more than 7 years (not as a full-time job) but hardly get me into any full-time Excel VBA job. C++ yes that's a good idea; however, without a quant degree it is very hard to move around.

    shuihongwong : sorry for late reply.
    I think Baruch is good one.. Location is very important than course content as they are similar

    Thank you again for your fabulous support and continued humane interface.
    Bionic Turtle was the most important factor for my success in FRM.
    In addition to many important feedbacks given by other members, I would like
    to add a few:
    1.BT keeps one on track throughout the year. This gradually adds to our speed
    and coverage of such a wide syllabus. Delivery of materials in instalments, makes
    busy candidates to be on target(I can't agree with statements like 'I started just 2 weeks
    before exam'.) So, this very important(often unnoticed) benefit of BT can be derived only by
    subscribing to/paying for it. Just storing the whole material(from some friend) in D: drive will
    only make one lethargic in preparation.
    2.Daily dose of briefcasts make it more easy to understand the finer points (imp. in exam).
    3.I request David to include the exact practice questions(as given in practice exams) along with regular studies.
    4.Pls. include the text of question/explanations in Excel worksheets itself.
    5.This forum was also a important part of my studies.

    Wishing you all, the best for 2009.

    I passed FRM Part I and Part II , of course with your guidance. I have written the CFA Level I exam on 4th December , It was not tough .

    In the meanwhile I find CIPM Course syllabus very interesting especially for the 2nd level. I need you suggestion on this --- should I buy the material for CFA Level II and start reading / or can I do CIPM --- Ethis and GIPS are common only difference is the performance measurement portion.

    What is your suggestion. I dont want to wait till Jan end.

    Hi saisubram,

    I agree with you (that the CIPM syllabus is very interesting; I sat it for just this reason). I assume you refer to CIPM Principles. But I did not think GIPS is highly prominent in CFA L2?

    In any case, it if were me, I'd stay focused in CFA before starting CIPM (that's what i did), but i don't a large downside (other than your time!). Thanks, David
