What Do The Instructional Videos Include?
Bionic Turtle was one of the first FRM preparation providers to instruct with videos. We currently offer 67 hours of instructional videos for the full FRM curriculum (35 hours for Part 1 and 32 hours for Part 2). We have been explaining GARP’s syllabus for about a decade with videos. Our instructional videos cover the Learning Objectives for the individual readings in the FRM curriculum, and they are organized in our study planner in the same order as the FRM study guide. We use video to convey the key concepts and, importantly, to summarize difficult quantitative ideas.
Because the FRM is highly quantitative, many of the concepts are difficult to grasp solely by reading text. This is where video really shines for learning. In many cases, we review illustrated calculations, such as stock option valuation.
If you want to see examples of our approach, please check out our YouTube channel. You can also view samples of our videos by clicking through the different readings in the Study Planner. Our instructional videos are available in our Advanced and Professional study packages.
What Do The Interactive Quizzes Include?
Question Sets and Interactive Quizzes. For most of your prep time (in the beginning and middle of your calendar) you will probably rely on our Question Sets, which often go into great detail, and consequently require more time...
What Do The Focus Review Videos Include?
Focus Review Videos are high-impact video reviews. The FRM abounds in details; deciding which details matter might be the most important idea of all. These videos swarm the exam’s most testable concepts for each topic in the FRM curriculum
How many FRM practice questions are included in your materials?
We currently have over 4,500 FRM practice questions (2,000+ for Part 1 and 2,300+ for Part 2), published in our study planner and in the forum. Further, we have hundreds of FRM practice questions that are discussed in the forum, including ....
What Your Colleagues Are Saying
I took the exam in Sydney and had a similar feeling about the exam being more qualitative (but no less rigorous). However, I felt I was better prepared thanks to the BT's relentless focus on throwing real life examples and methods.
I subscribed to BT for my Part 1 FRM exam and just wanted to say thanks for the depth and breadth of the study materials and practice questions. I found out that I scored in the top quartile of every topic and I absolutely could not have done this without using BT - I spent many, many hours going over the practice questions and answers! I wanted to express my appreciation and gratitude to your team for your hard work in creating these materials. Thanks!
The BT scripts, practice questions, global topic drills and mock exams were a great help in understanding the concepts (which I could already apply on the job!) and where structured in such a manner that the breadth and depth where optimal for exam preparation - clearly the exam would have been a catastrophe without BT!
Passed first time. Happy all the hard work paid off. BT was the right choice. Thanks David and Nicole for your work and commitment.
Passed! 1,4,1,2,1,4! Thank you David and Nicole for your efforts! Thank you BT! Couldn't have done it otherwise. I'm a mechanical engineer who had a career in petroleum services, then I decided to switch career to financial risk management. Passed part 1 from the first time with top quartiles and passed part 2 from the first time as well. All with BT! BT is always the recommendation I give to people aiming at the FRM designation! Thank you again!
Passed Part I and Part II first time - absolutely could not have done it without BT. Like a few others I didn't even both buying the GARP books for Part II and went solely with BT materials. Just read, answered questions, watched videos, read, more questions, and... more questions! All the practice question taking looked to pay off. Thanks again Bionic Turtle for a great curriculum. Keep up the fantastic work!
