Would someone be kind enough to provide a little more detail on how to calculate the covariance for example 5D to the IFM ASM manual 1e1p on page 64? How is the answer .00257? I keep getting a different answer and I have gone so far as creating a table of all the intermediate calculations  see attached.
Basically took the differences between the return of a stock and its respective average (expected) return, multiplied both differences, summed them all up, and divided by one less than the number of observations. I keep getting .001476. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Standard normal values, ASM?
Hi all,
I'm using ASM and I am wondering how they get such exact values for their normal distributions. I'm using a standard normal table found on google that allows you to input up to two decimal places, but my calculations are always slightly off since ASM's values are more exact. I used the same table while studying for Exam C and Mahler's values and mine always matched. Any suggestions on good sources for more exact values of normal distributions?

MFE Results March 2018
MFE Results:
(i) Congratulations to all those who just passed the MFE exam. Awesome... (ii) To those who did not, the moment is right to start preparing for the July 2018 exam. I strongly encourage you to try the PAK manual, since there is a whole lot of explanation of concepts, working examples and challenging examtype questions. Most likely, you may find the detailed explanations for the things you did not get right on the prior exam. Give it a try and you will not regret it!!
