    Re: FRM and general information

    Hi Neetu,
    Sample papers: Once you register yourself at the GARP site for FRM, they upload a sample test intended only for single person usage and locked by some software, so despite having the paper, I wont be able to share it here. In case you do get your hands on the Handbook, that contains the various questions from the last year papers, but its topic wise.
    Preparation Time: I prepared for 4 months nearly and as the results are yet to be announced so I wont be able to comment on my level of preparation. As from this year onwards, there will be two levels and no full exam, the amount of time required does come down. In my view, 2-3 months of preparation (provided you have a decent understanding of Econometrics, Fixed Income Securities and Financial Derivatives), should be sufficient. Its always better to be over-prepared rather than less prepared for something as important as this.

    Please let me know if there are any queries.

    Thanks Nikhil.

    Can you tell us a little more on the content of the test? Which topics were more challenging?
    Does GARP provide the study material or did you use some Schweser-kind of material?

    Hi Amitau,
    I am not sure how good the course is but I would always advise one to do a certification from a known and globally accepted place. May be you can wait or get in touch with someone who has done ISMA course and know further details.
