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.

I'm very interested in using your study guide as I prepare for MFE. Before I do I am wondering how it worked out for everyone else who used it... did everyone pass?

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.

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