Hi Zak, I have almost finished the practice of MFD's questions, and moved forward to the reviewing of chapter 2, 3 and 4. But I realized the drill problems cover a large proportion of chapter 1 such as Ito, Girsanov, Martingale, Brownian, etc. How could I practice myself during the reviewing of the chapter 2, 3 and 4? I noticed there is solution manual of FIS and VS, are these materials truly effective for the reviewing?

Good luck my friends. I hope your preparation is going well.

I have positive news from the other side. I do not think QFI IRM is that bad.

Glad to hear that you are on the positive way from other exam. Currently, I feel pretty confident about topic 1, 2 and 5. But still struggle with topic 3 and 4, do you have any suggestions how to prepare for the topic 3 and 4? I realized that there are not so many practice problems valuable for these 2 topics.
