Hi All, I'm new to the forum and I am looking for a prep course for the FRM to take for the May 2013 Exam. I know that sounds very far off as there aren't many materials or people looking at the year 2013.However this community seems very active and open to answering many questions. As of right now seeing how active the Bionic turtle community is I am leaning towards this product. Now onto the more pressing question about this prep course. If I purchase the materials in August and plan to take the May 2013 exam would most of the material still be relevant enough not to purchase any 2013 material? A bit of my background... Currently I'm a tax accountant who works at a investment bank. I am also taking my Masters of science degree in taxation(I have taken corporate finance and an international finance course for my electives) and will be finished in December.I don't think it will be helpful for me to start studying for the FRM until after I'm done as summer courses as they are pretty intense with a compact schedule. I will be taking my last course for my degree in Sept-Dec, but since it is only one course and I usually take two courses a semester, I want to take the time that I would usually spend on my second course to spend studying for the FRM. A little bit of what I plan to do in terms of studying: Purchase a Prep course on Sept 1 and around 10-15 hours a week until Dec. Jan-May 2013 Ramp up the studying to about 15-20+ hours a week. This would probably bring me to about 400 hours of studying hopefully. My mentality is that no matter how many classes I have taken in school I will be looking to study for this test as if I have no finance background. Please let me know if I should tweek my broad schedule.
