The only safe way is BT questions/summaries and official GARP readings. Good luck and fingers crossed.

@riteshrr99 the pass rate info was just tweeted (2 hours ago) by GARP (see tweet at https://twitter.com/GARP_Risk/status/880085908841693185). FYI, I just updated our long-term chart for the FAQ:

Definitely use BT (questions and notes) - don't skip anything. The questions are very well written and the same thinking/strategy goes behind real exam questions. I did the questions as many times as I can over and over and you always learn something new. Forum is also key. I did not use Schweser and don't feel that I needed. Take the time to read the readings - if you have the time (especially testable topics eg. VaR, Credit risk) !

Hey,

submitted my work experience yesterday and received the approval a few hours later :)

Thought this would take much longer....

So I guess - official FRM certified :)

for Nov'17 takers, my advice would be to go through as many forum threads as possible. Read a topic, BT or GARP reading (I did schweser only for Ops and current issues), your choice, and then go through relevant threads, I learned a lot from the forum in addition to David's notes ofcourse. I made it a point to go through atleast couple of threads everyday, consistently, so whatever I wanted to revisit, it tagged it with 'watch this thread', you will find excellent comments from veterans @brian.field , @arkabose , @emilioalzamora1, @Dr. Jayanthi Sankaran , @QuantMan2318 , and so on.. these people help us through all stupid and wise queries. Good Luck !

passed 1,2,1,4,2 order seems a little bit confusing to me, nevertheless i am extremly happy.
BT was a good choice, during solving BT questions I learned a loot of theory.
 
Congratulations to all the newly FRM certified!
I would like to seek your advice. I have passed level 1 this May, and I was wondering if it's too late to start studying for Nov'17 level 2 exam? I understand level 2 study material is more lengthy than level 1.. and hence i am not sure if I should take it Nov'17 or May'18 - given that I have a full time job? Would like to hear your thoughts..
