If I stick to my schedule I will be done going through the material by Sunday. That will give me 15 days for ADAPT and I am going to try to do 2 exams a day.

So I just finished interest rate models and I understand how to apply the formula to the ADAPT video lecture example questions...
conceptually the topic is hard to digest but...solving the problems seem simple enough. Are interest rate model questions generally straightforward plugandchug?

Yup. We think the main formulas that you really have to know would be the formulas for delta and gamma. According to student's reports (and AO), there weren't any questions that involved calculating Greeks other than delta and gamma in the Nov 2017 exam.
