What Do The Learning Spreadsheets Include?
To our knowledge, we are the only FRM preparation provider who offers Learning Spreadsheets. These are Excel-based workbooks which illustrate almost all of the exam’s quantitative concepts. Why is this helpful? Because many of the concepts in the FRM cannot be adequately conveyed in text alone. They must be rendered by spreadsheet, or code, to be properly understood.
Text by itself imply simply allows for too much subjectivity; text alone can fool us into thinking we understand something more than we do. Consider volatility, for example. Many articles on the internet, and in the financial press, will verbally explain “volatility” as a concept. But the FRM requires a specific understanding of the basic definitions of volatility.
Illustration in a spreadsheet forces you to confront the nuances and choices involved; you soon realize there are many different ways to calculate volatility and you become quickly familiar with the key issues. And after you’ve grappled with excel- o r code-based volatility, answering an exam question becomes so much easier. For a truly robust understanding of FRM concepts, we recommend our Learning Spreadsheets.

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!
