Optional Basel readings for FRM Part 2 - May 2015

Thread starter #1
Hi

I referred to the study plan 2015 to find that Basel readings at the end of Operational Risk Management section have been made optional by GARP this year. It seems these readings have been a part of the syllabus for some time now, only to be made optional this year.

1. Basel II: International Convergence of Capital Measurement and Capital Standards: A Revised Framework
2. Basel III: A Global Regulatory Framework for More Resilient Banks and Banking Systems
3. Basel III: The Liquidity Coverage Ratio and Liquidity Risk Monitoring Tools
4. Revisions to the Basel II Market Risk Framework

Is there any guidance on how to deal with these readings?

Particularly, I am short of time and would like to spend minimum time on sections that are not required but at the same time I do not want to risk sections that could be really important.

Hi
You can go through these readings if time permits,i would advise to give a quick read atleast if there are time constraints. These readings being optional are not that important from exam point of view but you should know some important points related to these readings. May be you can read the summary and look for important formulas and terms and avoid details. Scan for formulas and definitions/terms and read them carefully.
Thanks

Thanks sir.
That would mean reading these once shall suffice.

Also, I realise I have posted this thread in the most unrelated section (guess its a mistake since this was my first post ever).

Hi
Yes please post under relavant section. Please see the relevant section under forum each section has a name after the major topic area for each part,for e.g to ask question related to quantitative section of part I post under the section named Quantitative Analysis,similarly under other sections named Foundations,Financial Markets & Products and Valuation when you need to ask question under part I. Similarly post under relevant section for part II.
Thanks
