Default Here are my MFE Flash Cards

I removed all of the tables and graphs that I scanned from the book and manuals because they are copyrighted. Otherwise, most of the formulas I entered using the equation editor.

I make no claims to these being comprehensive, accurate, useful, etc... so double check the formulas and all that.

I had to split the file in two parts because of the size.

Good luck!

Default MFE Study Guide

It's not perfect, but it's pretty thorough, and I believe my equations sheet at the very end is pretty accurate.

Jraven and anyone else, feel free to review and comment on changes/upgrades to MFE study guide.

Default MFE Study Guide - Fall 07 2nd Edition

Fellow AO members helped me update some small errors in my original study guide. A brand new Spring 07 guide will be out by March.

I just started studying for MFE but have found your guide very helpful. Have you ever thought about doing this for all test? or publishing a guide like ASM?

Thanks for the compliments, but that's a bit over my head, especially at this point in my career. I was doing it to help myself while studying, and didn't make it public on the AO till it was finished. I do enjoy teaching, but my explanations can be loose at times, and any writings involve some fine tuning. Nevertheless, I have a lot of interest in creation of an online study guide such as TIA for math courses such as algebra, trig, calculus, and basic stats.

Hopefully if I'm taking MFE in Spring, I will definitely use your notes. Looks good so far colby, keep up the good work.
