Which was the most helpful to me between Bionic Turtle and Schweser? Hands down it was Bionic Turtle! Also, the Schwser live online classes cover mzterial much in so little time that I felt like the concepts were just being glossed over. In contrast, I found the Bionic Turtle videos to be far more substantial.
BT devoted far gar time to videos than Schweser there are literally dozens of hours of videos that you an download that cover all areas of the curriculum. I felt like the BT videos took their time and really covered the concepts well. BT is such a bargain!!!! I referred only Schweser and that too only for a week!
I used both bionic turtle and schweser. Bionic Turtle was my favorite.
Wiley FRM – FRM Study Material & Exam Prep
I used BT predominantly – while I went over the video I took enough notes but never got a chance to review. Then I religiously took a lot of QBank and at one point I came to realize that QBank is more of refresher quiz and so I started doing practice exams – I spent the last 3 weeks taking only exams bt qns, schwe qbank, mock exams and FRM exams.
Schweser all the way: The next level in March this year. If you do have more time would recommend a revision of schweser!! I used Schweser and surprisingly passed.
Right on exam day I felt badly underprepared. Do have a good look ate the GARP provided sample exams! Schweser videos are not worth the money as they are very superficial, but the Final Review Guidebook served as a good starting point for retention exercises. I occasionally used the Risk Manager Handbook as a reference. I also got the Hull book, incl. It feels way more complete and comprehensive then the Schweser books.
Also, I found the Basel II readings in Schweser left out a lot after I went through the original document over the holidays. I did very little studying, knowing many overlap with CFA I passed all 3 levels. I put most concentration on Credit Risk and OpRisk, while studying very little case studies. I think I spent at most 50 hours studying.
I thought I was marginal but now I think I did better than many passed candidiates. We will find this out soon! BTW, used Schweser only. I read the Schwesers and then spent the Friday before D-Day doing more than questions. That got me over the hill. Purely Schwesernever knew about BT, never opened the handbook.
I have bought it now as I want to go through it properly. I used Schweser as my primary prep material and skimmed through the past exam questions in the hand book. Also checked out few BT videos on Youtube available for free. Answering some of the FRM exam questions need in-depth knowledge on concepts hence using Schweser material is not a good idea. Even though I checked out few BT videos on youtube the concepts are explained in-depth and makes you feel confident tackling the tough questions in FRM exams.
The hand book is huge its hard to go through the entire material but I felt some of the FRM questions are entirely based on the FRM hand book examples maferial were used for explaining the concepts.
The Right FRM Course Material Will Help You Pass!
This kind stucy makes sense because the FRM test creators may be referring this handbook while setting the questions. Which again makes you feel confident in cracking the FRM exam. If I were to do it again I would use BT as my prep material and refer hand book to clarify doubts on tough concepts and may be Schweser for review. The CFA Institute curriculum makes for very interesting reading.
The selections are from some of the leading minds in the field. Core readings for quant helped me to get 1st quartile in quant Read Hull Chapters since 20 odd chapters are from Hull text thru out the FRM Curriculam Skimmed through Schweser Studied Handbook and diligently solved all the Handbook questions except credit risk and Investment management.
I think I was better off studying Hull which helped me get 1st quartile in market risk and 2nd quartile in Risk models schweser is horrible for ops risk and credit risk. Took off from work for a week before exam and solved Handbook questions and schweser practice tests. Not sure if entirely true, the exam is rfm getting any easier with time plus it does need a reasonable amount of time preparing for. SchweserSchweser and Schweser for me as well. Will start my CFA soon and will definitely use Schweser again.
I must say the FRM exam was a difficult exam- very tricky questions plus very overwhelming coverage.
FRM -Study material: GARP(official)/Scheweser/BT
I found the studying and exam questions on the FRM to be pretty straightforward, with the exception of a scant few questions on the exam. Maybe its because I have a maetrial quant background math undergraduate degree and its one of my stronger areas on the CFA. The CFA exam will omit major parts of its ciricculum because there is so much material to study.
The comprehensive-ness of it is what makes it so frustrating and difficult. I passed FRM Level 1 in the highest quartile for 3 of the 4 sections the other in the second quartile.
I used schweser only and passed. Toughest to easiest ranking. I used schweser and eduleap test series had some pretty tough qtns!
How I passed the Full FRM Exam
I cant go on readingg. Bionic Turtle is grap undisputed leader in practice questions for FRM. Check them out at www. I used Schweser for studying but used Bionic Turtle for practice questions. Schweser reading texts are great but the practice questions are not any where near the difficulty of the real exams but Bionic questions are about par with the difficulty of the real exams this observation is common among a good number of FRM candidates.
This was my combination and I am glad to say I passed both parts in the last Nov exam. This is not to say that success is guaranteed if anyone follows this advice; maybe it just worked for me as we all have our peculiar circumstances that determine our ultimate chances.

Rydex Jan 6th, The next level in March this year If you do have more time would recommend a revision of schweser!!

There, I said it. No thanks, I don’t want to increase my probability of passing.
