    As you are talking about Financial Engg, I am assuming that you are applying abroad to US or UK.

    NCFM can be a good bullet point in your resume. However it is not recognized as something very valuable. The admissions people dont distinguish between someone who has taken some advanced NCFM tests from someone who just took the basic exam. For most of them, it's a finance certification from NSE.

    Basically, it's a good to have but not required if you have other certifications or relevant work experience.

    I think the basic modules are pretty useless as you don't add much value. Try to do the advanced modules. I found the Derivatives Market (Dealers) Module and Options Trading Strategies Module particularly useful.

    Hi,

    The NCFM is good to have but don't count too much on it. The admission committee would like to see how you are different from the rest of the applicant pool. If you are a CFA Charterholder or have 3 years of Investment Banking experience, you'll not need a NCFM. However if you don't have any other certifications or experience in finance, then you can atleast start with NCFM.

    Hi Neetu,
    The material is quite useful and for test its more than enough.
    when are you planning to give the test?
    If you want to be 'BOND' of Derivatives read 'option,trading and other derivative' by John.C Hull...

    Please let me know if you need any further help from my side on this.

    Bye
