Examiner's report will be an interesting read...
I had a BAII but I didn't know how to use the cashflow, so I got killed on that part too. I ended up writing down a formula and then writing you do xyz and here is a made up number. That is why I got 50-74%. It's annoying that a calculator trick was essentially tested.

Default First Time Exam 9

Do you think it is safe to purchase the book for Spring 2020? Any idea if the syllabus will change between now and next spring to not include it?

Assuming you're referring to BKM in which case you can find the 10th edition on line. Don't see the syllabus changing much, if any.

Yes, I am. Have not really looked into it, but just wanted to get an early start if at all possible. Much like everyone else I am ready to be done with the exam taking process.

So, I have found an online PDF for 10th edition of BKM... is there a website that anyone trusts to download the BKM book?

Thanks in advance
