Hi All,

Is there any experience about GARP E-books? The only infomation on website is that the files are not printable.
Are these files MOBIs or other? Can the files be converted to pdf?

Thanks a lot!

Hi @eszaknyugat,

To my knowledge-

GARP's FRM e-books are available for viewing online only and cannot be downloaded on to your local disk as PDF files. Neither you could print the files online too !

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
SSK.

The e-book is available for 3 years only to you. You can access the eBook on up to 3 different devices ie, ipad, a desktop and or an Android tablet. However need a Vitalsource Bookself account which allow to read on line or in the case of off line you can access reading via the bookshelf app. You can not print.

Hello,

Does anybody know if it's possible to copy paste information from the ebooks to Word for example?

Thank you for your help

Hi @Bernard57950
Now that GARP are with VitalSource Bookshelf you can (when I had originally signed up for the Nov 2017 part II exam before I deferred, they were with a different Pearson ebook solution which was terrible and didn't let you copy), but the quality varies from book to book.

In the market risk book these blocks appear in the middle of the text. (I reached out to them about it some time ago, but have given up on trying to get it fixed.)

In others like Credit Risk it works better (I noticed a box in front of "-50% correlation" in red below where we should have had a minus sign. Edit: The BT forum has removed the box so you can only see my red "50%" without the box in front of it)

Sample:
Figure 16-1 shows the impact of wrong-way (and right- way) risk on the EE. We can see that with 50% correlation, WWR approximately doubles the EE, whilst with 50% correlation, the impact of right-way risk reduces it by at least half. This is the type of behaviour expected: positive

So the quality varies from book to book, but it is possible.

Hello Karim,

Thank you very much for your answer. It's a shame that it doesn't work better. It is a fast way to summarize the key points instead of writting them down and losing some precious time!

Have a nice day and good luck for the FRM part 2!

Best regards,

Bernard

Thanks @Bernard57950 :)
I've just passed Part II and am waiting to hear back about my work experience.

Good luck for your exam!
Karim

P.S. Realized I goofed on the dates above since the terrible Pearson eBooks were when I originally signed up for the Nov 2017 part II exam before I deferred to May this year. I've corrected my original post.
