Customer Book Reviews

Great study manual for exam FM/2


This was the required textbook for a course in Financial Mathematics I took to prepare for exam FM/2. It covers everything in the exam syllabus, and there is an excellent website that goes with it. The instructional material in this manual is superior to the others that I used. I think that it would be possible to self-teach the material with this book. The only drawback is that there are no practice exams in the book. I used the Actex and ASM manuals for pracice exams and additional problems. For what its worth, I just passed FM on my first try, and I feel that I was very well prepared.

Did the Trick


Good, concise, easy to understand text to prepare you for the exam. There are plenty of practice problems for each chapter as well. I used this as my main study resource for the FM/2 exam and passed on the first try.

Course Notes not included


I was happy with the service. My only peeve is that the book did not include the additional "Derivatives Markets" note packet, which is included with the text when purchasing from the publisher: [...] Of course, this is mostly my fault since nowhere had the seller listed that both text and course notes were included. But considering the price I paid for just the text was comparable to the price the publisher sells both items, I had expected ti receive both. Other than that, great service.
