Hi All - I'm getting started with Part 1 FRM studies, registered for Nov 2012. Recently I appeared for CFA Level 2 test. With that back ground, I would appreciate if y'all can answer some questions for this newbie -
- Any BT associates - I'm deciding between Tier 3 and Tier 2 package for Part1. I believe spreadsheet is the only difference but what exactly spreadsheets do? I haven't found a sample for it, or did I miss it?
- I have ordered FRM core materials, I see there FRM handbook 700-800 pages and I'm also planning to buy BT notes. Wondering how you manage between these 3? What exactly FRM handbook is useful for? For example for CFA handbook helps for ethics etc.
- I was comfortable using CFAI books, of course time consuming but would you recommend FRM core material, BT videos and practice exams? or would that be little stretch and use BT notes + selectively use core notes?
- How do you manage - not having end-of-chapter answers to questions for core materials? I see threads where ppl mentioned about it not being readily available but do you still think its worth solving EOC questions and using/finding solution for different sources if its available?
