These aren't exactly study notes, but it's a wikibook for the exam that I've been working on. http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Financial_Math_FM

Try this approach: Set a numerical value, probably 10%, and try getting the PV or FV of $1 using this 10% as compound interest, simple interest, simple discount, and compound discount. See which one is highest.

After trying this approach...setting i=d=10%, i ended up with..

(1.10)^3 = 1.33 (compound interest)

(1+(.10)(3))) = 1.30 (simple interest)

(1-(.10))^(-3) = 1.37 (compound discount)

(1-(.10)(3)) = 0.7 (simple discount)

"Correct me if i mistaken in formulas..."


Thank You so much !!

I used a combination of the ASM manual and McDonald's Derivatives Markets textbook to compose these notes. Graph images were taken from Marcel Finan's free online FM/2 textbook (found here: http://www.atu.edu/mathematics/finan...hall/mainf.pdf)

They are certainly not perfect and I am happy to correct any and all errors. Just PM me and tell me what is wrong with them.

Also, I apologize that the graph images in the PDF file did not convert so nicely from Word, but the Word document was too big to attach.

Best of luck to all future exam-takers!
Great job on the study guide aaye, but I think the labels for the Long Put and the Short Put are mixed up- from what I understand a put situation is as follows:

The seller purchases the put (short put)

The buyer writes the put (long put)

Default FM Formula Practice Sheet

Hey all,

Used this Formula Practice Sheet when studying for Exam FM. It's quite extensive and helped me remember all the formulas. But, please note, practicing problems is the best way to learn!! I passed and this website was great help! I'll add a rough answer sheet soon.

Btw, I found it useful to do the formulas randomly.
